(ol' Pete makes his way out through the key hole)"ol' Pete is renowned for his long sessions in the surf" said Mex, a previous colleague of ol' Pete, then known as Pete. "Sometimes he's in the surf with us in the morning, we go home, have lunch, mow the lawn, take the missus shopping, then go back for the arvo surf and he's still in the water."
(ol' Pete, takes a high line to keep an eye out for his nemesis)
ol' Pete's passion for surfing long sessions has seen him lose a few kilograms and he is now down to his fighting weight. Ready for a stoush and known for his hunger for waves ol' Pete has a reputation for snaking fellow oldfartsurfers, sometimes upsetting the bonhomie in the sea.

ol' Pete pushed his wave hogging a bit far in the Old Farts Surf Co. Easter Classic 2011 when he tried his wily old tricks on the master hassler, Rouge (OFSC No. 45). It was reported that ol' Pete's snaking days were nearly over when he cut inside and tried to take a wave from Rouge, who had been waiting politely for his turn.

It was reported that ol' Pete ended up on the rocks while Rouge weaved his way gracefully down the point. However, oldfartsurfer experience tells us that history is written by the victor not the vanquished. "Has anybody seen ol' Pete around" said Rouge when he got out of the water.
