  • Description

    YOUNG AUSTRALIANS LINE PEARL TURTON, TYPICAL OF THE SYDNEYSIDERS WHO START EVERY DAY REALLY EARLY. SHE'S BEEN RIDING SURF-BOARD FOR TWO YEARS, AND, AT SIXTEEN, IS ALREADY A CHAMPION.

    SOME SIXTY-THOUSAND SUCH BOARD, IT'S ESTIMATED, ARE USED ON AUSTRALIA'S BEACHES... AND PEARL TURTON OWNS HER OWN. SHE TALKS ABOUT THE QUALITY OF WAVES, THEIR SIZE, THEIR POTENTIAL, HOW THEY CAN BEST BE MASTERED. HERE IS THE THINKING OF THE AUSTRALIAN OUTDOOR GIRL.

    THE BOARDS, LIGHT AND EASILY MANOEUVRED, COST ABOUT 40-POUNDS EACH. THE AUSTRALIAN SURFING ASSOCIATION HOPES THAT SYDNEY MIGHT BE THE VENUE FOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS NEXT YEAR.

    THEN COMES HER WORKING DAY - AS A COSMETICIAN IN A SYDNEY PHARMACY. AND IN THE TROPICS, TOO, THERE'S THIS GROWING RUSH TO THE SEA. HERE IN QUEENSLAND, WE FIND ANOTHER SYDNEY GIRL, VAN LAMAN, WHO JUST ABOUT LIVES IN THE WATER.

    SHE'D GONE TO HERON ISLAND, OFF THE GREAT BARRIER REEF FOR THE RECENT CONVENTION OF UNDERWATER ENTHUSIASTS. THEY WERE NUMEROUS CONTESTS... AND THE CHANCE TO SKIN-DIVE, SPEARFISH, PHOTOGRAPH, AND COLLECT SHELLS.
