Can Women Surf? A clip from 1966.

10 December 22


Well of course they bloody can – but once upon a time the question was deemed worth asking apparently - how about this excerpt from Australia’s ABC program “The Boardriders” filmed around Sydney in 1966. Glynn Ritchie’s a voice of reason at the very end, but there are a couple of recognisable heads in there who’d surely rather not claim these sentiments in 2022, and meanwhile the women just make them appear pretty ridiculous and the question moot.

The vid came to us from Surf Archive Detective Ian Lording, who added, ”The way it was. Fortunately for the most part, Victoria was spared from this.”
