When a blood smear was discovered in a Sydney suburb, trailing along a footpath, it was largely ignored by local residents. The police, too, who were used to hoaxes and bloody turf brawls, initially dismissed it as animal blood. But then they made a gruesome discovery...At the end of the trail, at the base of a cliff, lay the naked body of Tony Hines, a notorious underworld figure. He had a violent history - including a conviction for rape - and a very long list of enemies. Over the following months, police discovered more than they bargained for: a tale of revenge that would shock not only the city but also the world of international surfing. Koby Abberton, one of the most famous surfers in the world and the face of sunglasses giant Oakley, was charged with being an accessory after the fact of murder. His brother Jai was charged with murder after his girlfriend told stunned police an extraordinary story about the night of the killing. For local surfer gang the Bra Boys bad publicity was nothing new, but the arrest of two of their founders signaled something a lot deeper. Angela Kamper and Charles Miranda, senior reporters for Sydney's Daily Telegraph, followed the story from the beginning. Here, at last, is the amazing true story that so captivated Hollywood A-lister Russell Crowe, who worked with the Abberton brothers on a 2007 documentary, that he is set to direct a film on the subject, Bra Boys.
