Surfing in the 60's

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, February 15, 2009

My Dad will be turning 60 this year, and is still a very keen surfer.

A good friend of his from way back emailed some photos today of a surf trip they did around New Zealand back in the 60's. I love the photos, especially the stylish old cars and surfboards... not to mention seeing my dad without his giant moustache (he's the one on the left... on the turtle!).

    My dad turned 60 last year, and me and my sisters got together and sent him 60 little presents to open. My mum & dad are doing humanitarian work in Pakistan and sometimes feel lonely and quite absent from our lives...
