post WW2 house/shop example Caloundra, home of Cord Surfboards  in the 1960s

David Lascelles - "My parents owned a hotel at Caloundra (home of Moffat Beach, great pointbreak) and I did a little work there but really wanted to be in the surfboard business. It was all very young then and the rest of the boys were all working at Hayden’s. They made good boards, didn’t earn much money but had a good lifestyle and plenty of time to surf. It was during this period that I started to get a feel for the surfboard industry and learn how the boards were being built"
