HISTORY

 Tony Sykes was one of the true pioneers of Aussie bodyboarding and was there back in the real early days. Tony  bought his first Morey in Jan 76 as a kit board for $45 and was one of the only bodyboarders surfing in the Tamarama/Bondi area for a couple of years. When comps started in 82 he came 2nd at the first one ever, the “Winter Classic” at Queenscliff. Tony surfed and represented Australia with Evan Penglis & Mark Sutton at the 3rd Morey at Pipe in 84 where the frame grab below was taken during the comp.
