Surf Cars of South Australia

South Australia was pretty unique as far as the vehicles  that were used to get to the surf. From the early Sixties when South oz surfing pioneers Jimmy Miller  Peter Smith and a few other mates purchased a 1934 Ford V8, fit it out with surf racks that could carry upwards of 12 boards and headed down south around the Victor Harbour area,the South Coast Surf Chasers where born.

From that came The Surf Seekers, The Malabu Maniacs, Murphies Mob, Joie De Vivre and on the West coast the Fishery Bay Surfriders had the West Coast Surf Chaser. Four Point Surf club had their own and later in the 60s the Seaview Road Boardriders had two different chasers one through the mid sixties and another during the early 70's
