Surf trip to Newquay feb 1969

Skating up the hill from watergate bay.
Graham has sent these pics of a surf trip he and some mates made to a very cold Newquay in '69. He said he hardly saw any surfers apart from the vw bus from Devon, and it must have been freezing in an old two piece wettie with no boots or gloves !


Taken from the original Bilbo surf shop.






Here's fistral on a busy day with Grahams 8'4 Bilbo on the right.




Sailors arms was a must in those days.
