Tracks was first publsihed in 1970 by Albert Falzon, David Elfick and Paul Witzig.
“The magazine they created was all surfing, leavened with a bit of cynicism, anti-Vietnam War polemic, dope, swearing, naked women with brown shopping bags over their heads, and recipes. Witzig says his inspiration came from Rolling Stone magazine, the Whole Earth Catalog and London Oz.” - Extract from the Sydney Morning Herald
Shown here a few tracks after an east coast snowstorm.
My Own Personal Shaper - Garth Dickenson reflecting on his relationship with Michael Mackie
14 ~ October 2010
Garth: Peak moments he calls them, “I’m always looking for Peak moments,” he says. I think the other thing that’s unreal is; having a shaper that lives around the corner and he’s your mate and he sees you surf all the time. I think that’s a real privilege to have that kind of situation. Also he’s such a great surfer, he’s just a classic guy to hang out with.
The Fart Sucker
03 ~ October 2010
Excerpt from “Lost in The Ether” Dave Parmenter and Wayne Lynch interview.
Andrew: It’s pretty challenging.
Wayne: It’s incredibly challenging.
Dave: Every time it’s an adventure. You just want to get it to that meditative process. That’s why I don’t do shaping appointments, because the guy is just not going to get a better board. If I have to narrate it, be a tour guide and a be stand up comedian all at once while I’m shaping and talking through a mask so I end up with a sore throat, then I’m not in the board, I’m dealing with all this and then the guy stands in my light and I go, “Fuck it, I don’t even care anymore.” If the guy is gonna stand in my light then he’s going to get this rail.
Wayne: You should just fart a lot.
Dave: I used to do that to Rusty.
Andrew: What? Stand in his light?
Dave: No, pass gas. When you pass gas in a shaping room it’s really bad, but the mask makes it worse.
Wayne: Especially wearing that thing I wear because it sucks it up and delivers to you - no one else. (laughing)
Dave: It just clarifies it.
