HISTORY

FJ’s was a closeout shore-break barrel a lot like I Don’t Knows in Hawaii that became popular with Northside bodyboarders and photographers for its photogenic qualities. Dave Appleby from Narrrabeen was one of the first to capitalise on FJ’s. It was  named after a nightclub situated across the road at South Narrabeen. Ridtide and Aussie Bodyboarder Mag were litterally filled with FJ”s barrel shots in the 90′s as it was more like a photo studio setup than it was a make-able wave. This day I lost my camera when the housing sprung a leak and it flooded. Photo of Dave Appleby early 90′s by Stroh
