Suntan Man

Al Baldwin, 74, has sprayed his last beachgoer. Over the past 30 years, New Zealand-born Baldwin had become a fixture in Surfers’ Paradise beach, spraying an estimated three million beachgoers with suntan lotion. His business was a patch of sand where he sprayed suntan lotion on up to 600 beachgoers a day, and hired out chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. He grew up in a New Zealand orphanage, moved to Sydney in the early 1950s and to the Gold Coast in 1968.
