On Friday the 9th January, Burleigh Boardriders held their annual Charity- Auction Luncheon. That runs in conjunction with the 2009 Honolua Single Fin Classic.
The day was a great success with sports celebritys like Occy, Luke egan, Hoyo, celebrity chef , Peter Evans and rugby league legend Craig Wing.
Comedian Fred Lang was Master of ceremonies and continually brought the house down with his one liners and comeback s to the hecklers.
There were several great items up for auction including a signed Parramatta jersey and a set of canvas photo prints from Dick Hoole that MP had reportedly taken off his own lounge room wall to donate!!..
The surprise of the auction was the classic framed sepia print from Lens Legend Marty Tullemans of Michael Peterson which fetched a whopping $6000!!
The photo is an all time classic of surfing legend Michael Peterson posing with one of his finely tuned creations sitting on top of a dog house outside his old surfboard factory in Kirra.
The photo was taken in 1975 you can purchase signed copies of this print here on OceanArtwork.com
