Steve Wilkes (1992) Surf Lifesaving


Legendary surf swimmer Steve Wilkes competed throughout the 40s and 50s winning four Australian surf championships and placed on five other occasions.

Like the Suosaari brothers, Wilkes trained in a creek alongside his brothers. According to those who watched this Alex champion compete, Wilkes was fearless in the surf, taking on all that Mother Nature had to throw at him.

Described as modest and shy, Wilkes will long be remembered for his contribution to lifesaving.
