Jonty Hansford has some cool stuff in his vintage photo collection, including this copy of a Huisgenoot article on JBay from June 1970!! It was all about the beach squatting surfers that were setting up camp in the bushes on the dunes at Supers. Lighties with an average age of 22 were just pulling in, setting up their tents, and living the dream. Which confused the hang outta the conservative townsfolk!
Check out Larry Levin as a 20yr old surf rat in the first pic, together with Robin Mair in their surfboard factory. Robbie Ponting and Ken Freeland, also shapers from back in the day are on pg2.
If your Afrikaans is up to speed, you can read the whole article by downloading the pdf below, cos it's a pretty cool insight into the early days at JBay.
