Matt Holle forwarded me a note from Bruce De Graaf regarding… a movie that a couple of mates of mine set up in the late 70’s…it was all super 8 which they adapted and threw onto Youtube – it takes me back. All of these guys surfed with me at Long Reef and skateboarded around the local schools when there was no surf. One mate’s wife sang the backing for it.

According to youtube … Original 8mm footage from the late 1970s at Long Reef on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, surf, skate, motorbikes and stilts! Footage re-used courtesy Murray Ingersole and Dave Seymour. Screened at 2010 New York Surf Film Festival []. Beach Boys cover and original song Sweet Dreams performed by Rosie and The Thorns [].

Big thanks to Bruce and Matt.
