It was interesting to find the original add featuring Rabbit on the actual board we posted recently that was shaped by Bob Hurley and restored by Randy Rarrick.
Its also interesting to note what they were giving away as prizes in the early 80's.
I wonder how much he won...
I watched one of the early rounds of that Coke contest, it was held at Dee Why point. Rabbit surfed against Shaun Thompson, Shaun was more radical but rabbit got the long connected rides and won.It was the same day Potts blew M.R. out of the water and was the end of his long run of titles. Rabbit got like 20 grand big coin and was riding the red tiger stripe Hot Stuff thruster, I think the final was held at Cronulla Point.ReplyDelete
