1920s St. Ouen's Bay

Some of the intriguing 1920s images from Pete Robinson's Museum of British Surfing:





Jeremy Oxenden wrote about the image above: "Happy New Year, Malcolm. I was very pleased to find Peter Robinson and the UK Surfing Museum from the Bing site links. That is Oxo with the 5.5 prone surfboard. He surfed in Hawaii some time between 1919 - 1923. It must have been great fun back then. The Island Surf Club of Jersey UK was formed in 1923..."

Jeremy added this about the top image: "The Girls in the beach hut are Dot and Ching Martin, left and right, and Pat Oxenden in the middle. The beach hut went up in 1924. The German Army knocked all the beach huts down in 1940. My Grand Parents re-built their hut just after the war (WWII). It was their top priority. We still have the beach hut and still surf from there... Thank you for including Oxo and his surfing Gang."
