When I started surfing back in the early ‘70s the last thing you wanted was to have your parents come to the beach with you. It was the most uncool thing imaginable. Surfing was something you did in part to get away from your parents and to forge your own identity. I know I wasn't alone with this feeling because every one of my mates was the same, and everyone around us was the same. Parents just weren't cool, especially when it came to your surfing and creating your place within your peer group at the beach.

At 24 year's old, West Australian Mick Short has carved out a groovy niche for himself as a professional freesurfer doing things on his own terms. Following in the footsteps of our earliest Indo adventurers, Shorty shuns the pampered big money boat trip and swell forecasts to go overland for months at a time just to see what he can find. Sometimes he scores, sometimes he doesn't but every adventure is culturally saturating and more often than not he ends up surfing perfect waves all by himself.
