As a Grommet, Barney from the Gold Coast first began to bodysurf before he progressed to a standup for 6 months. He then got given a crappy coolite bodyboard for Xmas and got the bug. “My parents next bought me a Scott BZ and I started entering contests and winning them.” Barney won the Open Oz title at Dee Why in 86 then again in ’90 on the mid north coast. His best surf trip was Hawaii in ’86 when he competed at Pipe. Today the Barndog is still as keen as ever and is a regular out at Kirra when it breaks. Barny’s regarded as the Gold Coasts senior bodyboarding statesman he also is the Goldies largest bodyboard rep.  pic below Hawaii ’86 by Tom Boyle.
