Haha and DHS okes :)
Must have been after a migration of the group from 94-96 left that the Northwood peeps took over or sumthing cos I cant remember too many of them when I was there bar a few good men.
Remember the NBK?
Ag all us boogers were mates really hey its just that all the boys who were entering the contests hung out at North, except for Brendan Thomas who hung out at The Bay Upside down umbrella with us most weekends :)

Best times!

But times change and so do the locals at every spot. the old crew fades and a new one moves in..most of the the list mentioned seldomly if ever surf there fact most of the new generation of north beach riders spend most of their time up and down the coast these days, chasing bigger and heavier waves.

I think it's silly that people can just claim to be locals at any spot they put in their profile. Apart from Clint Cooper, Anrew Conradt & the Friedman Bros, I don't know a single person on that list. Here is, as far as I can remember, a list of the true locals of a once legendary spot. Clint Cooper, Bad Brad, Ben Gohl, Marcel, Danny, Strad & Kyle, Simon & Nick Berin, Brad(DK), Ivan & Ray Friedman, Ricky Laidlaw, Izaan Venter, Leroy Price, Jaque & Pierre Venter, Duncan & Andrew Conradt, Greg Keegan, Warren Bain, Phil Botha, Kevin & Mervyn Pearman, Shaun & Steven Bands, Rob Bailey, Michelle Van Schuur, Sharon Roos, Sheralyn Blakeney, Kelly Williamson. Any i forgot, sorry. It was so long ago that FB had real locals....
