Surfing Brighton in the 70's

This is surf at the east arm of the marina 1975. The year it was first ridden by just a handful of locals, some from Palace Pier and like myself some from West Pier. They had only built the two arms and had started on the main basin, hence the cranes!!

Great stuff sent in by Steve

Steve James pictured right surfing his 5' 7" Twin Fin Fish in Brighton mid 1970's.
