Here is a photo from the Museum of British Surfing archives of the 1978 Worlds held in East London, South Africa. Can you spot the British team members?
Captain Pete Jones, Nigel Semmens, Steve Daniel, Ted Deerhurst, Colin Wilson and Bobby Male.
It was a successful competition for the British team, with all the team making it through to the quarter finals except Ted. Nigel came 8th overall, and team GB came third, all in solid conditions so a great result!
The limited edition Ted Deerhurst t-shirts are selling really fast, and a big shout out of thanks goes out to everyone that has bought one to help keep the memory of Ted alive and supporting the Museum of British Surfing. If you want one of the t-shirts, you need to get your order in quickly.
We are open Saturday and Sunday 11am to 3pm, so call in and pick up a t-shirt, and take a look around the rich history and culture of British surfing.
