Class of 1977

A record number of 11 OPs took advantage of the relaxation period of lockdown 2020 by planning their annual surf trip.

They travelled down to Perranporth, Cornwall and were accompanied by great weather, excellent company and amazing surfing! A nostalgic nod to their younger days, the OPs have now introduced a regular 70's music and general knowlegde quiz for the best surfer. 

A member of the group OP Ashley Marshaw said: "Bones may creak, muscles may ache, and girths expand but if you had seen us in Cornwall you would have thought it was the summer of 1976..what a terrific bunch of guys. I am proud to call them my friends." - a great sentiment, showing how friends you make at PGS, are friends for life.
