Thanks! Looks like a pretty old website so hopefully the contact details are still right. It's the old fella's birthday next week; I reckon seeing that'd make his day.

'A Winter's Tale' I remember seeing at Palm Beach Cinema (1975)
When I checked that Hippy poster... I thought I was mistaken.
Just so you know Gold Coast crew never saw (Original?) Hippy Poster.

Goldie Groms got the 3D Hand Poster +(Blue Background +Black bottom Band)
https://posteritati.com/posters/000/000/037/485/winters-tale-md-web.jpg

So so many 70's surf flix at cinemas back then...never a bad one!

Palmy used to run (Groms vs Bert) marathons of 5 Surf Flix.
I reckon this film would have featured in one of Bert's marathons...for sure.

Yeah I have. I worked for George helping him with the edit and remaster of Innermost Limits of Pure fun.

These are all fragments of film he found while doing it.

how sick is that double-up bank at Lennox.

You could walk around the rocks at low tide that year.

Phil posted me a copy of A Winter's Tale during the week. Watched it with the old man tonight. Think we ID'd him on a couple of waves in the LA section (including the first wave of the section), as well as a bunch of his old mates he lost contact with decades ago. Really made his day.
Besides all that, it's a bloody good film.
Thanks so much, Stu!

Weird. Featuring Australian waves a tiny percentage of surfers here have surfed, let alone know about, I wager.

Especially compared to the NW of WA.

Yet where's dat good ol' outrage??

Confusing?

Yeah, nah.

All par for a blow-in's course.

no wuckers. it might be hard to find, I think it's release was blocked by people or companies mentioned in it.

I watched it when I was staying at a surf camp in Indo, they had a copy.

Good doco, great story and cool surfing.

Kiwi was Kevin Jarrett. The board had a keel, similar to a Pat Morgan style, and no straps. Hard to get up on but fun as on flat water. If they had modern straps you could have tow surfed them for sure. They may have in NZ. I think they are made by a guy called Tony Waterhouse. Don't ask me how I remember this. It's 44 years ago...
