Detail of Free and Easy (1967) poster - the South Coast surf club's version that is.Artwork by Tony Cope .

Here's another very rare 1969 flyer sent in by Tony-
''Probably the only poster still existing for Southampton Uni`s film show in May 1969. Southampton was prob. the best spot anywhere to show surf movies, there was another surf club there already, the Ordinance Survey SC ( OS had their HQ in So`ton ), and 3 much bigger clubs all within 30 miles, ie. SCSC at Hayling Island, Wessex at Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight boys would come in on a ferry for the evening. You could send out posters to the 5 clubs 2 weeks before the show and guarantee 100+ attendances, sometimes double that. We once hired So`ton Civic Centre for the night, got Rod Sumpter to bring down something of Paul Witzig`s to show, and filled the place. He was quite pleased about that......''.
Thanks to Chris Flower, Tony Cope, Graham Looker and Alex Williams.
