Lil Todd was just a freckle faced skinny young grom when he rocked up to the Northshore from California and battled it out with the worlds best for waves. For his age he was being hailed as a future US champion. Todd hooked up with No Friends USA and Elemenophee and his profile began to rise as he travelled the world on surf trips and competed. These days Todd has swapped over to taking pictures for a living and his work is in high demand by surf mags around the world. Portrait by Crawley Circa 2000

Eppo grew up in Port MacQuarie where there are no reef waves and swells usually closeout if it gets over 2 metres. This shot caught Eppo like most young Aussies venturing to the Northshore  forced to face  your natural fear of big waves around ’94.  photo Chris Stroh

Throughout the  90′s Jon-Kelly was a familiar sight at Off The Wall hitting lips and pulling in. There was all-ways a tight crew of young Hawaiians that hit the famous stretch of beach during the peak winter months looking for Kodak glory while dominating the sets. Around the mid 90′s Bodyboarders ruled this strech of sand. Jon K was one of the best.
