Alex Menzies was born in August, 1937, and has fond memories of going to the beach with his father. As he was born with Talipes, a condition known as “clubfoot,” land based sports were difficult for Alex, but he found that when he was “in the Surf Club and started board riding, and board paddling, [he] could mix it with the best of them.”
