MUNGA BARRY

 

There was a time, back in the 90s when everyone wanted a Munga Barry x Nev surfboard and the classic spray job that went with it. The red and white cross motif was briefly legendary, but he is much more than just a one-off surfboard designer.
Raised on the epic right barrels of the Goldie, Munga had a rep early for charging. He was picked up by Billabong and joined the top filmmaker of the time, Jack McCoy, on a series of movies, including Green Iguana. His sections on the 16mm epics were always some of the highlights, as he charged through impossible West Oz slabs.
He was also a world tour competitor from 1989 to 2000, whilst he never won it, he spent a lot of that time as the top Gold Coaster on tour and finished consistently within the top 15. Whenever the waves got solid, he was the man to watch.
