Qantas Stubbies California Surf Trials 1980

Greetings, Shredderz! As always, it’s Thursday night, which can only mean the return of Sagas of Shred. Yes, that means we have a brand new scan of a vintage advertisement for all your surf nostalgia needs. The ad you see above is for the 1980 Qantas / Stubbies California Surf Trials, which apparently took place at Lower Trestles in late August of that year. I don’t know about the contest or who might have won it, but I do love the minimalism of the ad. And who couldn’t like a picture of a koala on a surfboard?!

As always, thanks for reading, and we’ll be back next Thursday for more Sagas of Shred.
