2015 ...Saturday morning we arrive at Pataua....8am....bit down the beach from our old surfing hangout, and build a few sun shelters, and have a comp...'man on man' comp.

The surf is perfect size, offshore, and a beautiful little peak out in front......70+ people turn up...amazing...(150 all weekend) and we have a 60s longboard comp...can only surf on 60s board, no legropes....awesome......and no phones allowed  at the comp...guenuine 60s.....went til 1.30pm.....a great time had by all

Definitely recommend a guenuine 60s comp....60s boards, no phones, was just awesome

 DOUBLED UP  FOR SOME REASON ...DOUBLE PHOTOS cant b e bothered removing them ...to big a job

What the 80-90s kids have to look forward too! Ha!
