My Old Break - Nostalgia! This used to be my old local break back in the eighties when I used to surf it with Peter Wetteland, Jeff Preston, Rob Clark, Stephen Wickenden, Rob and John Matthews, Leon D. and many other names I now forget. Memories of great waves and good times. Are any of the old Bronze Beach crew still around?
