HISTORY

Doug Robson from Cronulla in Australia was the hottest rising star of Aussie bodyboarding around the late 80′s. Dougy had taken over from Chaz McCall at the Island freefalling and pulling into some incredible liquid caves plus he was making a name for himself in the contest scene making the finals of the Int. Pro Comp held at Cronulla Point. Doug had a unique big air launching style that all the kids labelled Doug Airs, including Eppo who took them even further in the coming years. At Suckrock in particular Robson would bust high and float well above the lip. The pic below is Dougy in full flight late 80s by Chris Stroh.
