... this Wednesday night head on over to Deus ex Machina for the launch of Christo Reid's book: Cactus: Surfing Journals from Solitude.

Cactus Beach in South Australia is the original secret surf spot on the edge of the desert and a part of Australian surfing folklore. Hard to get to and full of sharks when you got there.

Christo will be at Deus on Wednesday to sign copies of his book which documents 25 years of surfing this iconic spot and others. The night is part book launch, part exhibition, part reel footage, part bar crawl. All those parts add up to a hell good time.

Books are 15% off on the night... the perfect stocking filler for your salty pals.

Oh..to only be surfing Tallows or The Pass right now, with a thousand schoolies no doubt.. Photos courtesy of Common Ground and Kirra Cheers.
