Surf culture 0:35

Listen to John Brown and Don Marsh tell stories about surf culture in Australia.


John Brown: When balsa became the material of use surfing took off. A little later we had Gidget and all that sort of carry on and surfing music and surfing movies, etc, etc. Now as it became so popular people outside of surf clubs started buying surfboards.

Don Marsh: The reality is that many of the top surfers have come through the junior movement of surf lifesaving and have chosen to go down a particular track. A large number of surf lifesavers are very competent board riders.
