RE: Micheal Peterson

'ya gotta learn how to fall, before ya learn how to fly';I watched MP slap the shit out of Brad Gerlach, Tom Curren, and Dane at 8' Lani's; he stuck to completely vertical sand snappers, while others jumped and got scrapped up, 1978. Nobody in this column will ever even lick his toes (except the schizo quintuplets! Who are they, anyhow?).

I heard MP used to surf 10 ft Angourie at night by himself.

Is this true ?

Actually, the Aussie World team of 72' had a hut on the point and Baddy Treolar had a military light he could shine into the line-up; several illuminatos used this to surf by, including Wayne Lynch, Nat, and MP. G'day.

Micheal reckons in the book. Don't eat meat.
Is  this a secret to be a real good surfer.
It used to work for me years ago.
I just carn't seem to cope being just a Vego these days.

Just felt I should put U in on the list Micheal.

I feel U were like the old lumberjack who used to feel trees with a Axe.   Your Ax was a board.

Know Tree, Know Me.

Freaks me out to hear from people how much Micheal Peterson was into drugs.     I'm not even in smoking cigs or alcohol.

An old surfer Byron Bay local fringe dweller with 6 children who still surfs lots at 54 really put Micheal down with the rip offs he used to do but said he could really surf.

RE: Micheal Peterson

I'm trying to understand why some freshwater puddle-jumpers think they have the authority to knock down a surf designer and stylist who contributed to down rails, twin fin, concave, etc. and present designs? A tube rider on par with Kealoha, Lopez, Burns, Rabbit, Blair who fell on tough times (while no excuse for substance abuse, psychological challenges are different) should be commended for perserverance and not senseless ridicule. Grow up!

Yeah.  Not  wrong.

Right on.
