Watergate skate

Alex has sent in these photos of Rod Sumpter filming some skaters back in 1977. The bowl is at Watergate bay, round the back of the hotel and was only there for a while. The photos were taken during the 1977 Watergate surf open, hence the crowd.


  1. I'll let Alex know, cheers. Neil Watson just sent me an old film of Nigel Semmens and others in this bowl in 1977. Hopefully might get it on the blog soon.
