R.I.P. Bernard "Midget" Farrelly 1944 - 2016

Before guys like PT, MR & the rest of the "Busting Down the Door" generation there was Midget Farrelly who paved the way for the future of surfing. Midget is considered surfings first world champ, and from a young age was a sports icon in Australia. He did it all as far as surfing goes, from having a coveted surfing style as well as competitive dominance over his fellow peers. Midget for sure ruled the scene back in the day in Australia as well as making his mark over in Hawaii. Midget passed away due to stomach cancer on 8-7-2016 and will truly be missed. Rest in Peace Midget!
