• Dimensions: 227 x 295 - Landscape - 120 pages Published by: Surf Research Publication Date: November 2012 ISBN 978-0-9871522-2-0 This book came as a result of a wet North Coast NSW Australian winter and a damaged knee. My wife, Tricia, and I trawled through the 40 year old black and white negatives and colour transparencies. They’d been tucked away in boxes all that time; unopened, unseen. As we scanned in the negatives we realised we had stumbled upon a surfing anthropological find; a dusty archive of images depicting some of the most significant, interesting and creative characters in the history of surfing. Most of these photos have not been seen before, nor their stories told: Wayne Lynch at Lennox while on the run from the draft, rebels Miki Dora and Russell Hughes on the fence in Byron (what were they talking about?) and big south swells rolling by. These are one-off shots taken in a simpler time when there weren’t many people taking photographs. They are of a period remembered as pure and uncomplicated.

  • Dimensions: 227 x 295 - Landscape - 104 pages Published by: Surf Research Publication Date: December 2014 ISBN 978-0-987-1522-0-6 Surf Portraits and Stories Hawaii: Oahu-Kauai-Mau 1968-1972 Turning Point II is about a time when surfers headed to the tropical Hawaiian Islands to surf big waves and for some to seek sanctuary from the rest of America. They were at the forefront of new ideas, new surfboards, and a new consciousness. Rusty’s photographs in this book, taken tangentially in the moment as a member of his tribe, reveal a brief idyll when surf heroes were young, immortal and surfed like gods in Hawaii. You are seeing this era of time through the lens of Rusty’s camera and the stories inside. “ Steve Barilotti, Filmaker and former Surfer Magainze editor, veteran surf-culture essayist and documentarian.

I always relate to this shot as it reminds me of when we seemed to have a good balance of surfing, leisure and work, all with a pace which was similar to grazing. Less crowds meant that we did not have to rush to get to the surf before the crowd factor took away the fun factor. There was not as much of a feeling of being behind in getting a large number of waves under our belts.

A post surf session good wrap up in blanket and the closeness of female companionship. In the background wearing the bandana with large sideburns is Dale Dobson, switchfoot from California, who could do anything on a surfboard and an unknown wearing the Bells contest t-shirt.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm Jenny was part of the original group of the Sydney surfing scene to trail blaze to the North Coast of NSW to pioneer a different way of life than what the city had to offer. She was always a most generous hostess when all the hungry surfers came into her, and her then husband, Lester’s home. In later years she opened the first organic bakery, called Jenny Cakes, in the Orient building on the corner of Jonson and Lawson Sts, Byron Bay. Lester, was Byron Bay’s first surfing solicitor, and also a co-founder/owner of the renowned restaurant/bar/café Dinty’s on Jonson St. just near the intersection with Lawson St. There was many a wild time at Dinty’s. That’s another story.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm Cool and composed from Huntington Beach California. Absolutely the master of nose riding and a top stylist (both in and out of the water) in his day. Here, he was in the parking lot at Bells. There were no waves. He came in from LA, had a look, and went home. It didn’t fit his style and mood at the time. The stylish hat is from a famous LA designer, whose name escapes me.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm Lennox Point, as we called it The Ox, was and still is, to me the ultimate wave and place of North Coast surfing. It is my ultimate surfing pleasure. In the morning when you drive up to the headland and see the lines of a new big south swell, your heart rate cranks. In those days it was a cleared cattle paddock. If this scene were today the roadway would be jammed packed with vehicles from all states and surfers from all nations. Lennox Point is now a dedicated National Surfing Reserve, in recognition of its special meaning to surfers everywhere.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm We used to be able to drive in and park on the hill near the headland at Lennox if you had a four- wheel drive. This was Paul Witzig’s International truck with the peace sign on the inside of the back door. Not every other surfer had one in those days. Paul was filming Sea of Joy. This is my favorite lifestyle shot that shows what we were all into at that time, the perfect Lennox Head point day. Ah, when time suspended into long, warm sun-drenched sessions. The consistent quality waves here were the main dynamic energy source and common denominator. They gave us life force.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm I have many photos of Russell at this time as he was always around yet he was hard to keep up with in any way. He was an enigmatic figure in the era of the 60s and 70s, always in motion and forever mysterious. Where he was, and what he was doing, was to him not necessarily any of your bees’ wax (business). He always had an interesting car, a Cheshire cat smile and looked like he had just come in from a good surf. But he did not want to be photographed. Somehow I was able to capture him. He sure was photogenic.
