HISTORY

Posted: January 20, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Mark Sutton was one of the first bodyboarders from Newcastle. He competed in the early 80′s in Australia and had the privilege of being one of the first Aussies to get sponsored with free boards and compete in Hawaii. Mark ended up moving to Adelaide and helped promote the scene there with his influence and photography. Today Mark runs a Surf Shop on the Goldcoast. This pic snapped by fellow Novacastrian Dave Kelly and was taken at Blackrock in the early 80′s. It was a full on all star pro surfer day with Robbie Bain and Occy out. Mark still managed to sneak a few for himself.
