Coolangatta, its still M.P.s town.

I spent a week on the Gold Coast and everywhere you look there is something Peterson on the wall on a t-shirt or photos or bill boards, this area has immortalised his legacy. Which leaves you to think is it more defining to be  a cult hero to the masses or a clean-cut champion. In surfing the if you want a long-lasting legacy the cult persona has much longer legs than the champion. The only problem seems to be if you can live long enough to cash in on it. What you do to your body and mind may not contribute to long life, but the pictures and stories seem to go on forever.
