Artists, Writers, Surfers, Surf Life Savers, Community Groups, Clubs - everyone from those just in their teens to those who have passed the 90 years + mark. Histories and places we've never seen, the way people spoke, what they dreamed. The way it was then, the way it is now, the way we want it to be.
