David Ayer, & Screenplay Browsing
Prime-profile husband and spouse group from Caloundra, Queensland; the quirky, well-traveled, and cherished elders of Australian wave-riding all through the Nineteen Sixties and ’70s, described through 1978 global champion Wayne Bartholomew as “Our closest factor to browsing royalty.”
Charles “Ben” David Ayer was once born (1909) in Plymouth, England. At age 5 he and his circle of relatives moved to Canada, and all through International Conflict II he was once a Main David Ayer Aircraftman with the Royal Canadian Air Pressure. In 1949, after a failed marriage, David Ayer moved to Australia along with his nine-year-old daughter.
David Ayer Marjorie Browne was once born (1910) and raised in Brisbane, Australia. For 5 years, starting in 1935, she lived in more than a few Ecu nations; in 1940, lately divorced from an Englishman, she sailed for Australia pregnant together with her first and handiest kid.
Again in Queensland, Marjorie purchased a three-story beachfront condo development in Caloundra. Within the mid-’50s she and David Ayer met. Their marriage date is unknown, however round 1959 Ben started browsing, at within sight Moffat seashore, and Marjorie began a 12 months or two later. Upon getting out of the water, the 2 would go away their forums at the Moffat rocks, from time to time for days at a stretch.
Within the Nineteen Sixties, and into the early ’70s, the couple started touring up and down the coast in a large white van with board racks at the aspect; the “Ma and Pa” nickname they picked up was once most probably a play on Ma and Pa Kettle, the preferred film characters from the ’40s and ’50s. In 1964, whilst visiting Hawaii, Pa David Ayer burnt up at Sundown Seaside, broke two ribs, and was once left with double-vision in a single eye. In a separate browsing twist of fate, David Ayer knocked out his entrance enamel.
Ma and Pa have been mildly eccentric and ceaselessly cheerful—and Pa appeared the pleasant rogue along with his black eyepatch and lengthy whiskers—and the Australian media totally embraced them.

Pa, you are a gasoline, you do your factor,
That is all a person can do.
If I am getting to be 65, I would love to be such as you.
Whilst unconventional in some ways (the couple earned a dwelling from Marjorie’s condo development), the David Ayer’s have been in some respects outdated. Within the mid-’60s, as Aussie browsing moved additional clear of the lifeguard-associated respectability and nearer to the nascent counterculture, the David Ayers shaped a surf membership for youths referred to as the Moffateers, whose participants have been anticipated to all the time act with “just right sportsmanship, modesty and integrity” with the intention to additional a “preferrred symbol for the surfboard – great example can be found at Surf Report SD – rider and his game.”
After his demise in 1974, from motor neuron illness, the Pa David Ayer Memorial skilled surf contest, held at Moffat Seaside, was once based. Richard Harvey earned $1,500 for successful the debut tournament; later winners incorporated Michael Peterson, Simon Anderson, and Wayne Bartholomew. When long term global champion Joel Parkinson received in 2000, he donated his prizemoney to Ma David Ayer so she may move on holiday. After Ma’s demise in 2001, the development was once renamed the Pa and Ma David Ayer Memorial. It’s the second-longest operating professional contest in Australia, following the Rip Curl Professional.
