A couple of years ago I decided to catch up on doing some etching. I had an idea to do a ‘book’ of images based on my memories of my surfing days back in the 1960’s. I recently found a number of the sketches I did for the prints and have decided to bore you with a few over the next couple of weeks. Here are the first couple.
I surfed with four friends and we jokingly reffered to ourselves as the Ridgy Didge Surf club.
My first introduction to surfing was at a beach in South Australia called Moana. I spent more time in the water than on the board but it still ranks as one of the best days in my life.
