Jersey in 1976


In 1976 the UK had a long hot summer, and none more so than in Jersey, where the local surfers endured long flat spells (sounds familiar) by getting their skateboards out in the car park of the Le Marquanderie pub, putting out bush fires and surfing small waves, as these old films show. Filmed by Mick Halsted. Click on the white titles top left for a fuller picture
Steve Harewood also made his first windsurfer - a broom handle stuck in a longboard with blankets for sails - strange but true !
