Unexpected and world-famous guest at Surfers Paradise!

None other than Mike Love, one of the 4 original beachboys, suddenly walked onto the beach with his family this afternoon. Their way of celebrating "Independence day", between 2 concerts in Rotterdam.

He proudly posed with Frank Vanleenhove at the original poster of the concert they gave on 21 July 1987 at the place where Surfers Paradise now stands. At the time, the concert by the beach boys attracted 15,000 spectators to the salty beach and became the biggest concert ever held in the seaside resort. Many locals and tourists still remember this sun-drenched concert vividly, as does Mike Love himself by the way. "Good Vibrations" brought him back to Knokke-Heist.
