For almost 40 years, Australian surfers have greeted the world as talented, outspoken and adaptable, and this has everything to do with the near-endless variety of Down Under beaches and surf spots. Three of Australia's best-known breaks -- Queensland's Kirra Point, Victoria's Bell's Beach, and North Narrabeen in New South Wales -- are presented in this edition of the Surfer's Journal. Watch 15 foot surf at Bells for the 1981 Rip Curl Pro. Cringe at the rough dominance of the North Narrabeen Boardriders Club in the 1970s. Rock back and forth and moan softly as Gold Coast surfers race inside the tube at Kirra for 50 yards at a stretch. A capsule history is offered foreach spot, along with a generous collection of details and anecdotes.
