Al BaldwinPrint Page
Sculpture commemorates Al Baldwin known as the 'suntan man'. Local artist Frederick Berjot created a bronze replica of Al's famed deck chair and his peaked cap. The memorial also includes a plaque honouring the suntan man.
Al Baldwin became a local identity on the Surfers Paradise beach, spraying sunscreen lotion on locals and holiday makers for more than 30 years. At the height of summer he sprayed as many as 600 people a day and is thought to have sprayed about three million bodies over the years. Sadly, he died in 2004 from the effects of lymphatic cancer.
