Whats Bunny Bay? If you are talking about Bondi, that's the 1st time in 45 years I've heard it be referred to as "Bunny Bay". As for people on the beach when it was overhead, you obviously have never been there when it is big. I watched my best friends brother (Steve Corrigan) surf it 20ft+ (30ft+ faces) in the 70's, my brother 12-15ft, Col Sutherland, all the Cram brothers, Cheyne Horan, Gerhart Til, Carrets, Elliot Moore, Mick Ford, Myself and many more of my friends. Pat the only nick name we ever had for bondi was scum valley. Bunny Bay sounds so gay. It was never called that. And in the 70's, we had more big wave riders than any other beach in the world and most of the guys i mentioned were pro. You can google that too.

I'm getting sick of all these wannabees acting as they know all about surfing history, when they don't have a clue. Here is a tip. Before you make unfounded comments on this forum, check out a site called surfresearch.com.au, it gives you so much history on surf culture in Australia and worldwide. Then you can make comments that are true, unlike the last know all (not). Please get your facts right. I'll take the personal digs against me and reply as civilly as possible. But total miss information, I wont take. I've been in the water and the scene for a very longtime and I will jump on you, if you talk rubbish. So Pat take your false comments to a joke or kook forum.

Hey Daryl ,just head south to Bronte and you'll find Bunny Bay on the south end of the beach. I thought you would have surfed the place many times. Its a crankin rock shelf. Ask your friends , they all know the place backwards ....take care..Pat

.....Bondi in the 70's ?-------the best surfers in the world, I couldn't agree more Daryl .They had the raw talent to burn around there ! ...and they had style..panache I didn't live in Bondi , but it was always good goin there ,whenever I was in town , just to have some waves (not 20 ft) and catch up with some old mates.

You talk so highly of yourself and put down your potential customers by referring to people who want to be surfers as kooks. Isn’t that what everyone started out as? As for unfounded remarks, you yourself are a nobody. No one outside of your realm has even heard of you, as confirmed by someone who’s been where you claimed to have roamed.Because of your Napoleon complex, you find that you have to exaggerate everything that you've heard and make it as your own so as to cover up for your shortcomings. Pay your taxes man or go home to your make believe schizophrenic driven fantasy dream. If it was that good, what are you doing here? We’re all kooks to you anyway.Lastly, you’re only here on this forum to push for your business. Just read the top part of the forum.

I never made any personal attacks, read the whole thread.
Find a job and pay your taxes, and maybe even go back to school so you can make better arguments instead of making a fool out of yourself on the internet.

....Hi Daryl , I think you missunderstand me . I am not negative on your wave pool , it's just not my preference or desire to use one . maybe there is virtue for beginners............I been surfing now for just over 46 years (I am 55 ), and still surf every day theres waves and still like big days (at certain breaks).I surf with surfers from age 12 to mid 70's regularly .I just hope that PI surfers don't treat surfing as a sport....bec it is so much more than a sport .....RICHARD FUTCHER--SCOTT DILLON--KEVIN BRENNAN--CHRIS BROCK--google these guys and you will find that Bondi's surfing history and culture goes way back before your time (and mine as well) ...regards...Pat

Pat, I am the 1st guy to apologise when I am wrong, or misunderstand someone. Sorry I misunderstood you. Thought you were an alias. Bunny bay, still has me baffled. I was a nipper at bondi and bronte. Lived at tamarama across from the surf club. The way I remember, it goes, Bondi, the boot bay, then around to Mckenzies bay, Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly. Then you have that place before Coogee. Is that Bunny Bay? Yes, I think it is. Yep, I'm the kook. Sorry mate. But I did think you were talking about Bondi. But as for da boys not getting out there when its big, you must of been baiting me.

I remember Kevin Brennan, he was good mates with Brad Mayes and crew. He was one of the older rock crew. Didnt know Dillon was from Bomdi. I thought he was a north shore boy (Manly, Freshwater), Im not sure though. You mentioned a word "panashe". It was the best club around at the time. Anyway, I understand you now. Sorry I jumped the gun. Your for real.
