This is Sam Yoon. Sam is a Gold Coast local who lives at the Southern end within striking distance of Currumbin Alley, Snapper Rocks and the famous Kirra Groin. A few weekends ago he paddled past me on a particularly beautiful Sunday morning when Kirra was cranking, we exchanged pleasantries and talked a bit about his recent trip to Hawaii. As swell lines approached he turned around and paddled into a set wave. From the beach this is what it looked like. Sam sets up with a graceful old school Island stance, legs apart arm trailing in the wall, it reminded me so much of Hackman or the Owl back in the day. Go Sammy go!
This forum is an opportunity for me to shoot shit on my favourite topics, namely surfing, board design, WWII military stuff, beachcombing and grass shack living and lets not forget vintage clothing and lots of other off beat and interesting stuff.
