Newquay’s Peter Keyes made two iconic surf documentaries in the early 80’s. For years they lay collecting dust n his attic until friends persuaded him to remastered them.
“In 1982 and 1983 I made 2 surf documentaries, The ‘82 Newquay Surf Classic and the 1983 Europro. I showed them both in the King Mark pub to a group of surfers. Since then they have been gathering dust in my attic.
“Last month a few friends persuaded me to have them digitised and I set about restoring them.
“I had to use new music because the original had tracks by artists such as Duran Duran, Joe Jackson and Roxy Music. I have recut the film, cleaned up the soundtrack and put the new music on, although I have managed to retain a Mechanics’ track sung by the late Al Hodge. The films are essentially as first shown.”
