"Back in 1995, I watched Munga Barry catch a huge wave at Sunset Beach in Hawaii," Beachley says. "It made such an impression that I have a photograph of it

in the loungeroom of my home in Sydney."

At the time, she had only been on the professional circuit "a couple of years" and the Gold Coast-born Barry was one of her mentors. She'd been shopping in Waikiki and came onto the deck of the house she rented with some other surfers when she saw him tackle a ferocious wave.

"My three kids had the opportunity to learn the art of surfing"

My three kids had the opportunity to learn the art of surfing on our recent trip to Burleigh Heads. Munga Barry was fabulous with the kids. He had them standing and riding the waves in no time. The kids had some extra company out in the water too!! Steve Fagan
