|Mark Occhilupo at Byron Bay on Thursday night|
And Mark Occhilupo would be one of my surfing heroes being around the same age as each other and him being a Cronulla boy.

|My kind of board;-)|
That event was the Surf Legends Lounge featuring the surfer that I only really cared about seeing that night, Mark Occhilupo.
Luckily I didn't go down to see Dave Rastovich, as he didn't even bother to turn up, because the surf was up with the cyclone happening off the coast, so he went surfing instead.
But it was still good to listen to the surfers who resisted the big waves to show up for the event that people paid money for and invested their time in to see.
Feeling guilty yet Dave?-)
But I was surprised to see that Peter Tork from 'The Monkees' passed away on the same date as the Surf Legends Lounge, February 21st, 2019.

But as much as the Americans tried to engineer a more homely substitute for 'The Beetles', they were never much more than a "shits & giggles" band to me.
It was just another laugh show like 'Gilligan's Island', which I liked watching much better than 'The Monkees'.
Still, it was an OK show, I thought.
Not that I was a believer though;-)
