Mark's photos

Mark at Newlyn pier. Early 80s on Vitamin Sea twin fin.

Here are some of Mark's old photos of him and friends surfing in West Cornwall. The photos may be dusty, paint stained and have bits of tape stuck on them, but I think they're great; one man's experiences growing up with surfing in the far west, places I know well and look very familiar, albeit 30 years ago. The memories live on ; mabye even some of the boards still do....

and him again at Newlyn pier. Must have been a big swell to get that working.

Sennen 1980. Mark is on an Inner Visions channel bottom rountail twinny. See through star fins and really short - from his memory not much over 5 ft. Local colourful character Jo Crowe paddling out.

Same as above. Keith Prowse (flapper ) behind the wave and Roger Weeks paddling out.

Shaun Tomson, Newquay 1983

Shaun again

Bruce Palmer twin fin and Bob Biniak Dog town skateboard, early 80s.
