Surfers: Tom Carroll and Kelly Slater

Word got out fast. Kelly Slater was in town. It was the first day of school holidays in the Northern Beaches suburb, the sun was out and the swell was kicking. Kelly lived around here in the early 90s and many a story has been told of his exploits at the unique reef-break, but this was an opportunity for a new generation of groms to get a glimpse of it for themselves. Quickly, very quickly, the clifftop carpark was buzzing. Tom Carroll and Barton Lynch went out, as well as Kelly and a classroom of groms on bodyboards and shortboards. While it was by no means epic, it was definitely some very entertaining viewing, 'cause hell, the greatest surfer in the world was casually out surfing at whole heap of groms' local break. And that doesn't happen every day now does it?
