Winners are grinners!

Kerry Purdon was anounced today as the winner of the of the custom Dick Van Straalen. Kerry couldn't get that school boy grin off his face and seeing as he's such a legend we where happy for the board to go his way.

 Here with Rodney (who will be paying for the board)

Now Kerry's off to the dream factory to see what he can come up with..

Switchfoot 2

This book is a treasure chest of surfing history. With long winding interviews with legends like George Greenough, Alby Falzone and Geoff McCoy its like Surf Hystory School for the kids and a stroll down memory lane for the oldtimers who where lucky enough to be there. There is also some work from some local new kids making their mark in the industry such as Luke Tafe and Ryan Heywood. The ultimate coffee table book!
