passion for the surf and surfing began at an early age in 1977.
I started off on a classic wafer thin wooden board, about the
same height as myself at the time. My dad having cycled regularly
to Llangennith and enjoyed the bay himself as a child, chose
Llangennith beach as our playground most weekends. We braved
the waves armoured with 7mm diving suits with very chic orange
velour lining and flattering under flap fastening that looked
like bolts holding your pelvis together.
Having been inspired by one of the first movies of the late
sixties shown at the pattie pavilion in Swansea, my father designed
and crafted a 10ft surfboard out of marine plywood. With no
real knowledge of board making and using only his professional
skills as a carpenter he created the “blue board”
in 1967. A Hollow core board, flat bottomed with a single tail
fin. I have no recollection of a leash, tail pad or wax, so
it was a pretty slippery sucker! It was a two-person operation
for launching and carrying down to the sands from across the
dunes. Its levelled deck provided us with a perfect picnic table
when upturned, and the afternoons of surfing were complemented
by a feast of foil -coated baked spuds over a log fire and charcoal
