45 year old sole surfer. the true local - back in the 90's there was a group of lads that surfed clockies near every day. it was a combination of swansea and belmont boys that went to bellie high. the only other people we saw out there was a ledgend sole surfer. there was a few occasions when we showed up at the crack of dawn only to see the ledgend solie already out. we became good mates with him showing him respect. he was a 45 yearold stand up surfer. he recons b4 we started surfing the joint he rarely saw anyone else out. surfer joe lambo leesy aubo gillies vaughano hunt and griggsy were the boys that stayed at joes pad and learnt from the ledgend himself. in the mid 90's we decided to surf the island. but thats another story. ps the island is eppic.
