The gathering of the salted is on again.

Witness the great master Martin Worthington performing onsite board sprays - Tony Airspeed will be in the yard pinstriping your bare breasts or bicycles - bring something you wanted attacked with a blade brush.

For the woodheads, there will be hand shaping of timber alaia boards as well as display and demos from gurus of wood surf sleds, Grown.

Plus the usual mix of vintage surfboards, print art and bric-a-brac from Jeff and other ye old ware mongers.

Stefan's Vintage Wall Of Joy - with only pre 1990's boards - will be rolling throughout the day where you can put your own down on consignment for the day whilst you haggle.

On top of all that, the famous Deus Food Emporium will be dishing out delectables, not to mention the lucky door prizes and general good times, etc.

aaah... the serenity

snapper: simon perini
slider: sean finnelley
session: sydney summer 2011

simon's words: it was a scorching summers day with crowds everywhere and hardly any waves - but somehow Sean manages to jive his way through it and create some moments...

Denpasar Daily

... have just returned home from a month long production run in Bali... yes, I know, tough gig! Every morning after surf check and papaya juice, I would mount my trusty iron horse and head off to Hari's screen-printing factory for a day of proofing... (works in progress shots later)

the sights, sounds and smells of Bali on the move is something to behold and I kept my Canon in the top pocket to capture some of my fellow commuters:

..... hands on the wheel, eyes on the road .....

..... floss daily .....

..... he's got balls ....

..... cartoon cluster ....

..... he's cool .....

I Wanna Make a Movie..or..

Here's a few frames from Mikey Detemple's new film, Sight|Sounds. Below is the trailer he's released. Makes me really want to hit up my local camera store, buy a Canon 5D, a waterhousing, put myself through 4 years of Film School, shoot shoot shoot..edit edit edit..and then maybe I could turn something out like this..

..Or I could just crack a Corona, hit Vimeo full screen, pump my speakers and enjoy the work he's done thus far. Thanks Mikey for making my life easy.
