Many thanks to Pete for lending his stash of old surf mags, full of old ads and photos for the blog. Pete ran the Tris shop at Porthtowan after Tris left and also imported boards like Natural Art into the UK. His son Darren was also a successful junior, winning the English and GB junior titles and 2nd place in the Euros in the early 80s. Pete remembers having Rabbit and Cheyne Horan over as house guests during the '81 pro am which must have been cool, and Darren drew a rather difficult first heat against Cheyne ! I think Cheyne and Rabbit shared 1st place in the end as the waves disappeared on final day.
