    Great listening to Ray . I also grew up in Torquay at the same time.l was the first girl to surf at Torquay .My name is DIANE RICHARDSON née HUMPHREYS ,I was called GIDGET. I have Lots of great memories spending all Summer at the surf beach in front of the surf clubhouse and surfing in winter without a wetsuit.l started riding a board in the late 50’s on a board purchased from Graeme McKenzie (another local who lived around the corner fromRay).
