"How do you police this beach against trouble makers on surfboards?"

31 May 21

Flash Back to 1964: A mind-snapping four-minute vid from Australia's ABC Four Corners program:

"How did surf culture change Australian popular culture? Rock music and the concept of the 'teenager' had arrived in Australia in the 1950s but in the 1960s the surfboard gave rise to a new youth subculture. This clip from 1964 explores conflict in the water and cultural changes that came with the rise of the 'surfie'."
