Surfing at Bondi Beach over 30 years ago when single and twin fin fiboes were the rule with Cheyne Horan and Ant Corrigan ‘rippin’ it up. Music by the Killers – “When you were young”
@knibbsdavid Cheers mate, classic days @ Bondi hey? When Ant, Brad Mayes, the mighty G&S ruled! Different place now – Whatever happened to Vic Ford? Glad you enjoyed it 🙂
Hi Mr BB .. do u know what month in 78 this was … or even the day … or if there’s a better resolution for this anywhere … think it’s me walking past in the opening sequence lol! ex-Bondi girl but not a surfer, just used to watch them and the waves, ta.
@debmet2 hey deb, not real sure exactly when it was shot but the boys are in spring suits and boardies so probably early Spring. This is about the best resolution going as it was shot on the old super 8 and transfered to VHS. Did you know Nell Schofield who use to surf at Bondi back then and went into acting starring in Puberty Blues round. BB then?
Hi Mr BB, thx for info n no didn’t know Nell or any surfers, just used to watch em, an waves in awe (only swam,mostly underwater since kid at Bondi-loved it), Nell’s prob bout 8-10yrs younger an me-remember book/film,forgot contents mostly, must re-read/watch film!-pity surfing’s not featured in most news media in 2012, only usual cricket,football,golf,soccer, tennis & occassionally surfing as special feature,not good,needs to be higher profiled for today’s youth-keep em on the straight n narrow
This clip & thread/comments used to be on the Channel of “Mr Bondi Beach” … noticed it was on the net on a site called Surf Nomad …and this was uploaded with some of the comments…from here at SE Surf on YouTube …are you all one and the same – aka Mr Bondi Beach, SE Surf & Surf Nomad … very confusing!
Hi, Haven’t heard of the Surf Nomad site and not sure how the video got on that site, but I changed the Mr BB name to SE Surf which bought all the videos across under that name. Mr BB had his day in the sun!:)

This is the direct cut/paste of comments from your page here … I was a bit surprised to see it … so as you’re not aware of it … then here’s the Direct Comments “lifted” apart from it appears, lots of this type of thing happening, it seems like a pretty good site of collections of vids n movies n googling I found maybe the site’s going to be a shop-front for Roy Stuart Wooden Boards with links to Geoff McCoy saying “good on ‘ya” type of thing.. w w w. thesurfnomad. com /w p /?p=1416
p.s. had to put SPACES in the URLS…stupid bloody YTube doesn’t allow web addresses in comments f’in annoying…excuse the french!
I was 28 and riding a kneeboard although thats not me.I would have been there somewhere.
Cool man, yeah I remember ä couple of kneelos at Bondi back then still a few @ the Bra these days! Hang loose 🙂
I regularly surfed at Maroubra as well up to 2000 when we moved to SOUTH OZ.There was a guy Doug Brigges at the Bra. on Kneeboards in the 80s &90s.
