In Natural Flow - DVD
During 2014, Steve Core's 1971 Australian classic surfing film In Natural Flow was masterfully restored from 16mm film by Surf Film historian, archivist and restoration specialist Warren Delbridge.
On Friday Jan 2nd, 2015, In Natural Flow was screened for the first time to the public in more than 30+ years at Surf World at Currumbin on the Gold Coast.

The night turned out to be biggest single event night the Museum has ever had. The 'Full House' sign went up and people were turned away at the door. The MC and host for the evening was surfing journalist Tim Baker, on stage for a talk-fest after the screening were two Gold Coast ex-ASP World Champions; '76 ASP World Champion Peter 'PT' Townend and '78 World Champion Wayne 'Rabbit' Bartholomew.
Byron Bay-based retired surf film-maker Dick Hoole, brought along Michael Peterson's mother; Joan, on the night to represent her late son, Australian surfing super legend, MP. We had a vacant chair on the stage as a mark of respect for MP.
The night was a virtual who's who of surfing. Also present on the night was ASP tour veteran and '80s surfing legend, Cheyne Horan. Iconic Qld pioneer surfboard builder Joe Larkin, and a band of some of surfing's biggest names in Richard Harvey, Wayne Dean, Andrew McKinnon [who has a few waves in the film]. Hot Stuff Surfboards founders Paul Hallis and Gill Glover. Geoff Darby from Darby Surfboards. Ex-Cronulla surfer and now leading Gold Coast surfboard shaper, Matt Hurworth was also there on the night.
In Natural Flow captures the early '70s Queensland point breaks in their classic 'long gone' glory days. With young guns Michael Peterson and Peter Townend tearing apart the almost uncrowded pristine waves.
The old guard are represented by another ex-World Champion, Nat Young tearing up some vintage overhead Lennox Head point waves. Cameo super smooth appearances from former Australian Champions; the late Keith Paull and Peter Drouyn.
