Back in ’89 in Australia, Doug Robson from Cronulla was the man to beat. He ruled the local contests and at the same time owned the slab known as Shark Island. Dougy was also hogging the majority of bodyboarding photos being printed at that time. Photo of Robson below by Stroh

Dougy and I met through our mutual admiration for Shark Island in the late 80′s. It was my favorite wave to shoot and Dougy’s favorite to get pitted. Before long this skinny kid was taking all the waves that no one else wanted and scoring the hell pits and I was lucky to be there and catch many of those waves on film. I believe it was because of Dougy who inspired a whole crew of kids to charge that turned Shark Island into a world famous wave.Photo Stroh
