THE ONE & ONLY ALLAN BYRNE 1950-2013

August 9, 2013

Morning all,

Sad News folks as tributes have been flowing in from around the world for New Zealand surfing great Allan Byrne following his shock death in Bali.

The 62-year-old died following a motorcycle accident on the Indonesian island last Friday that left him in a coma.

Byrne had huge respect in the international surfing community for his abilities on a surfboard and also his revolutionary board shaping, especially his channel bottom designs.

He was a four time New Zealand open champion who shifted to the Gold Coast in the late 1970s where he made his name and fame in the board manufacturing business.
