Torquay 1970s Surfing Culture . . . it was another planet

23 August 23

With the WSL Longboard Tour set to roll into Bells next week, maybe it's timely to revisit the ABC's Weekend Magazine expose of Torquay in the early '70s and find out a bit more about the surfing kulture. David Hill reports.

(BTW: David Hill went on to revolutionise cricket with World Series Cricket for Kerry Packer, then launched Sky Television for Ruper Murdoch, and he produced the US versions of The X FactorAmerican Idol, the Academy Awards, and six Super Bowls. He never did top this piece from Torquay though.)
