Stephen Cooney was raised on the Northern Beaches of Sydney in the 50s and 60s. At the age of 16, Albe Falzon invited him to Bali to surf in his upcoming, now seminal, surf film. Cooney found himself embedded within three simultaneous flash points in surfing; the shortboard revolution, the MOTE movement, and the launching of Tracks magazine. Today we revisit the stories and photos through his newly released autography, Unearthed. Enjoy!
