This shot of Eppo was taken in 1990 at his flat in Port MacQuarie. This was pre ARS, Double Roll and Backflip. Eppo was at the time the most explosive bodyboarder in OZ and in the coming months he would take his act to the world stage. Photo Stroh.

One of Eppo’s distinguishing characteristics was changing his look. If you check out images from the 90′s his hairstyles are many and varied ranging anywhere from afro to shaved and everything in between. This shot taken in West Oz around ’96 with one of his more tame styles. Photo Stroh
