    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.

  • American and Australian surfers in Byron 1960s & 1970s Dimensions: 244 x 210 - Portrait - Hardcover - 184 pages Published by: Surf Research Publication Date: August 2022 ISBN 978-0-9871522-3-7 It is the story of the surfers, American and Australian, who made Byron Bay their home in the 1960s and 1970s. It is a social history of a time in Byron that changed its history forever. Culture wars. Freedom, rebellion, they believed they were going to change the world. “Byron Bay is rich in stories: something has happened in every corner, behind every tree, on (and under) every blade of grass...and of course in every take-off spot. This book is a treasury of those tales that give Byron its unique living spirit. To read it is to feel that you have been welcomed into a tribe.” Malcolm Knox, Australian journalist, author and surfer “Tricia has successfully woven personal stories of drama and daring into a layered social history of the far north coast seen through the eyes of a community of American and Australian surfers tied through a bond of understanding and respecting a feeling. A feeling born out of the joy we experience playing in the waves, how simple and yet how powerful that connection can be.” Simon Baker is an award winning actor and director, a surfer and north coast resident.
  • 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.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 52cm x 42cm These three, lazily, you could almost say, are grazing in the paddock. 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.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 85.6cm x 68.2cm When the sun came out and you were surfing Lennox the day just seemed to float. Here, spending suspended long days cushioned by the thick green tufts of grass on the northern hillside of Lennox, is Tommy filming Sea of Joy, Sade and Nyarie, who opened the first women’s clothing shop, Neverlands, in Byron Bay. We all had dogs, Afghans (Cloud here was my Afghan) and Red Setters, farmhouses in the hills, were doing yoga and growing vegetables. We were the new tribe. Surfers were carving their new lifestyle niche into the very conservative, local community of the tough, working class town of Byron Bay.

OUTSIDE MEASUREMENT: 52cm x 42cm There is no surfer more pure in essence of style than Wayne Lynch. Here, you can see the questioning mind. The waves did not show up, and many contestants were reflecting something like, ‘Are the commercial bastards going to make us go out in this?’ For me, Wayne is one of the great dancers of our breed. Three others are Phil Edwards, Joel Tudor, and David Nuuhiwa.

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.
