Surfing Snapper Rocks 1962 - By Garry Birdsall is part of his "Surfing in the 60"s Surf Art Series".
Garry recalls " For over half a century hundreds of thousands of surfers, including myself, have spent hours enjoying the waves that form off Snapper Rocks, up in Coolangatta.
Garry was born in Sydney where surfing is a national pastime (in his words). He spent all his leisure time as a youth on the beaches surfing. He was one of the pioneers of Malibu surfboard riding. Garry’s surfing ability was so good that he competed in numerous Australian and world surfing events. He was the first artist in Australia to do airbrushed paintings on surfboards. Most of his life he’s worked in the surfing industry form board building to wholesale & retail sales.
Today, Garry paints in his Sydney based studio. He uses a variety of mixed media but mostly favours the technique he used in “Cronulla Point Going Off” which is a combination of opaque and translucent watercolours. He’s still out actively surfing.
