1974 South West photo shoot for WA Surf Magazine

In 1974 surf photographer Ric Chan took talented free-surfers Mick Black & Russell Quinlivan down south on a photo-shoot assignment for West Coast Surfer magazine. This photo shows Mick Black surfing Noiseys near Lefthanders.  Mick was a fisherman/surfer and as he lived near Triggs Point, he was known colloquially as the Trigg Point Kid (TPK). He is now a cray fisherman at Quinns. Image credit Ric Chan.
