Former South Australian Barry ‘Baz’ Young has been a resident of WA since the late 60s. He now resides at Yallingup with his wife Judy and still surfs like a grommet.
Back in 1964 Baz was a founding member of the Roader’s (Seaview Road Board Riders) in South Australia.
Baz attended the Roader’s 50th Anniversary held in Adelaide during December 2014. The Roader’s are one of the oldest board clubs in Australia to have continued since inception.
