  13. got ’em, and by the way old veteran – we are putting together a post on that mob of deros who used to gather at moana vale – it will be insulting, gratuitous, savage, unsporting, not nice, unfair, full of lies, and generally in bad taste.

    you of course will feature heavily, as will schlonger –

    Bloody good mate but even better for ‘seeing’ your ‘voice again – still ripping it up – on shorties which is more than I can say for the Schvartzer. Remember this:

    Around the Bends
    Your attention please! A cursory glance at the Scripps animated wave map today indicates that we will be on the receiving end of some larger swell in the next couple of days. Sound good? – and it should be coming out of the NORTH quarter. Yowser!! So prepare thyselves well lads, and keep a close watch.
    (Report filed Monday, October 30, 2000 at 09:37:16 AEST)
    Some swell leftover and although the wind has gone a little east there are plenty of good enoughs out there to go get wet up this end. Not many around for the early early – Compo, Richo, Bhudda, Marylin, Big John just to name a few. Yesterday I thought that I saw Micky Dora out there ripping the gutz out of a long right, turns out is was Parker-Brown (Spike) riding a long’un.

  15. marylin, I forgot him – give us a reminder – he was gorgeous right?

  16. Inside Bill – surfs at The Bluff and generally makes the wave from inside everyone else. Current.

    “Blackie” – Wayne Black, legendary Kirra goffy footer in the 60’s.

    Bogangar Bob – Bob Ryan, Kirra surfer and catamaran sailor also the 60’s.

    “Horny”. Sort of self explanatory. Skinny Kirra local from Tweed River High back in the day.

  17. ta trev, I remember boggo bob from the days way back, even have a pic of him leaning up against his car at bogangar

  18. It MAY have been a coincidence but he disappeared from the scene at the same time as Ben Cropp’s first wife.

    Fish and the ‘Good Doctor’

    One of the regularly seen faces at MV was Rex Campbell, a Christian surfer, who was more of a mate for Fish than anyone else. Fish did tell me Rex, who we always knew as ‘the good Doctor’ had had a few quiet chats with him about the ‘good book’ but there was only ever one God for the Fish – and he was a cross between pre-political Peter Garrett, Tom Curren and Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Big Brass Sound.

    The origin of Oroton Bob

    By the way Schvartzee’s alter ego is ‘Oroton Bob’ – so named because of the time he piked a filthy surf to go handbag shopping with his Missus. When he told us (me and the Fish) where he’d been, after a moment of shocked silence, we told him he should have told us he’d been out looking for a new set of mags for the Kombi – anything but a bloody handbag – so ‘Oroton Bob’ he became.

  20. they are in – ta spike, oroton bob is pretty special (the big sheila)

    Pete, re your “names” section. Don’t forget “Roger the Dodger” Mulhall and what about “One Legged Jack” who used to frequent the mIddle back in the early-mid sixties.

    June 4, 2013
  24. Roger the rooter Mike, known for it. Record adjusted. Had a feed with Dooley the other day, all good. He’s Hawaii bound soon, wants to beat Cochran and Wheels at tennis. Wheels not so good, surviving on bullshit.

    June 4, 2013
  25. Mike 'Spike' Parker-Brown #

    Yeah – but did One-Legged Jack surf on one leg or was he a Kneelo?

    June 4, 2013
  26. he only had one knee

    June 4, 2013
  27. I know we have Uncle but remember ‘Your favourite Uncle Pete – you just never know when he’s going to drop in.”

    Don’t know if ” one legged” Jack surfed, maybe he once did. He just hung out at the middle of the beach, probably having a good perv. Knew there was something about that guy I liked.

    Just stumbled on this gold mine
    Pete the Pom – ha ,shit he could talk shit – copped a bit when he went and streaked his hair blonde/yellow at the age of 40).
    Marsupial – would drive up from south coast for his Sydney shift at a station on the south of Sydney. But would sleep in his car overlooking the reef so he could be first out . I woke him up one night and offered him our spare room a 2 minute drive away – he passed, didn’t want to be late for the surf
    Possum?
    Scotty the Survivor?
    Doza? the day he chased Bedford Brown out from the wedge
