Around 1990 Shark Island was a melting pot of high energy bodyboarding. On any given swell there was a hand-full of young riders who were pushing one another to go deeper and deeper. Names like Doug Robson, Youngy, Nugget, Dave Ballard and Wazza were redefining one of the worlds heaviest slabs that was purely suited to bodyboarding. Among this gifted crew was also Matt Percy in the pic below. Perce was the Black Knight of the sport in Oz  who started a movement to avoid competions held in crappy beach breaks.

Cronulla’s Matt Percy was well known for his Shark Island charging in the early 90′s. He also gained a solid following for his stylish moves in and out of the water. A bodyboard purist Perce didn’t buy into the whole Pro Bodyboard spin to win scene and was vocal in his objections. He rather put his energies into free surfing and travelling. This photo caught Matt doing what he did best getting pitted. Photo Stroh Island  ’89.
