Arguably the most definitive article on GG!

Sometime ago, in the days when PG would communicate with me, he told me about a comprehensive article he had written about GG's life up to 1970.
The article was published in the Autumn 1999 issue of the now defunct "Australian Surfer's Journal".
After a lot of searching around on the internet, I managed to get my hands on a back issue ages ago and have been meaning, ever since, to subject myself to the laborious task of scanning all 53 pages of it for your viewing pleasure.
Well, today, as there was no chance of a wave this morning, I did just that and 2 hours on, *here* is my gift to all of you. Friend or foe!
It is scanned at 300dpi so do take the time to download it and have a good read and check out the awesome images. I should have descreened it but that would have taken about 6 hours on my domestic scanner.
Enjoy and thanks for taking the time to drop by over the last couple of years.


  1. I should have been at work 40 minutes ago, still reading, Cheers.

  2. I have now added this to the on-line library of mat riding guides/manuals and out of print articles in the right hand coloumn of the blog.
