Cool, we're unearthing some old PE ballies with all this retro talk lately. Wayne Goschen sent in some kiff old shots from the 80's. Wayne surfed for EP in the Longboard division whilst he studied at UPE, and was the first EP Longboarding Secretary when it was first started by Martin Haines and Steve McKetchnie in about 86/87.
He was in the first EP Longboard Team that travelled up to the first SA Longboard Champs held in Durban in 1988. EP went on to win the next SA Champs in 1989.
He's currently based in CT, but is hoping to find a post as an oceanographer back here in PE. Let's hope so - we need some surfers who have the credentials to be able to look after our coast.
Wayne remembers Steve McKechnie used to shoot a bit back then, so does anyone know where he's got to these days? Last I heard he'd left the country? Used to have very entertaining sessions at Millers with him listening to all his weird n wonderful inventions....from neck rashie scarves to mobile climbing walls. Was never a dull moment with Steve!
