HISTORY

Posted: February 9, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Dave Shaw was one of the first Aussie riders to get his hands on a Boogie board in the late 70′s. Prior to that Dave was a talented Mat rider who charged large Cronulla Point and was a rising star behind the camera lens who documented the first bodyboard images in Australia. Dave shot the first Morey Boogie ad used in Australia he also represented Oz at the 1984 Morey Boogie International titles in Hawaii. He wrote the first article in Australia in TRACKS on Bodyboarding as well as a monthly column in Waves mag. Daves contribution in promoting the sport in the early days is unsurpassed and without his dedication and his water photography skills the sport would have struggled to get any real exposure.
