"In the Shadow of Giant Jeffreys," Derek Hynd, SURFER, Dec 1984

Mark Occhilupo had won the Country Feeling Surf Classic, defeating Tom Carroll, two sets to one, in the quarters; Richard Cram, two-nothing, in the semis; and Hans Hedemann two-zip in the final. He had posted his first ASP tour victory.

Occhilupo's second set comeback against Hedemann, in quality three-to-four foot Supertubes, had become an all too common facet of his surfing.

His win, however, is sure to fall into the shadow...
