Les Tyack says he saw a naked George Pell expose himself to three young boys in the Torquay surf club changerooms in the late 1980s.

The businessman said he told his wife and some friends about the incident 15 years ago and gave a statement to Victoria Police five years ago.

But he went public this week in a bid to encourage others to come forward.

“I thought there may be other situations that people have witnessed and have thought about it but never done anything about it,” Mr Tyack told AAP on Thursday.

“I’ve got nothing against the church, nothing against anyone.”

Mr Tyack said he regretted not talking to the boys or telling people at the surf club straight away about Cardinal Pell, who was then a senior priest in Melbourne.
