In 1968 former World Champion Midget Farrelly (from NSW) brought the first pintail surfboard to WA. Midget rode the board to victory in an invitational surf event held in conjunction with the State Titles at Yallingup. It was the emergence of pintail surfboard designs in WA.

In 2001 Surfing WA commissioned SW surfer/photographer Loz Smith to create a collage of Sally Jones’ images from Midget’s earlier visits to WA. On 20 October 2001 Surfing WA presented Loz’s collage to Midget at Yallingup Beach. Collage image courtesy of Loz Smith.
