Tigger Irish trip '67


Tigger Newling has sent a few more classic photos over from Australia, the first of which are these from an early surf trip to Ireland :
'Here is a shot of L-R Myself, Nick Kavanagh (designer of the Jolly Good Logo) and James Trout just about to head off to Ireland in 1967 for the First Irish International Titles at Tramore. We got great waves. John Baxendale even shot some Super8 footage he posted on YouTube of less great waves but kind of interesting. We are all on longboards. I had a Bilbo 9' and the other two boards on the roofrack were imports from Australia Shaped by Midget Farrelly at Keyo.'
Check out this Ballinkelligs footage in County Kerry from the same trip, you can even see the same land rover.








This black and white shot with Irish pioneer Kevin Cavey ran in Surfer Magazine that year.
Thanks to Tigger. More coming soon about the Jolly Good years with some beautiful board artwork.
