Queensland surfers as a rule are starved of solid reef barrels however Paul Barnard and his mates knew about a secret spot just down the coast that offered Shark island like barrels. Barney relishing the moment Circa 90′s photo Peto.

Barney is the Mayor of The Gold Coast when it comes to Bodyboarding. One of his favorite flat day pastimes and a rite of passage for many was to head out to the Gold Coast hinterland where natural springs and rain forests abound. This day Barney gets air on the rock slide. Mid 90′s photo Stroh

Barney is the evergreen of Queensland bodyboarding. A former Aussie champ he’s still as passionate about the sport today as he was when he busted onto the scene in the mid 80′s. This classic fisheye shot was taken at Barney’s fav. reef by Peto.

Barney had done more for Queensland bodyboarders than probably anyone else throughout his long association with the sport. One of the original pioneers and former Aussie Champ is still  as keen today as when this pic below was taken in the early 90′s. Photo Tullemans
