there, around 15 to 20 feet, with offshore winds and
clear sunny skies.

One mistake and death was a real possibility,”

on the cake,” says Bonython. With Brook Sylvester's
Cyclop's film, 'The One Eyed Monster' and Tim Bonython’s

on a 30 year journey of surfing including the legendary
Bells 81 big waves right through to the most perfect
waves ever surfed this year on the Gold Coast’s
Superbank at Coolangatta.
says “I have shot thousands of hours of surfing
over the last 30 years and Wild Australia is my pick
of the best surfing I have seen in this time”.
To bring back the 80’s vibe, Tim is planning
to narrate Wild Australia live as he did back in the
day when he toured pubs and clubs showing the latest
footage with his Super 8 – keeping the punters
up to date before the video era.
DAYS at OURS

fearless big wave surfer Mark Mathews is the star
of this year’s Australian Surf Movie Festival.
Mark’s objective is to surf the biggest and
heaviest waves on the planet. OURS, located at Sydney’s
Cape Solander (outside Botany Bay) in April 2007 was
surfed as big and mean as it gets.
Ours with Mark Mathews includes the Bra Boy crew of
Ritchie Vaculk, Evan Faulks, Koby Abberton and Bronte
surfers Kobi Graham and John Dwyer. These fearless
surfers tackle some of the nastiest barrels ever surfed
in Sydney and for that matter Australia or anywhere
else on the planet.
says “I promise you that when viewing this footage
which is our finale you will be blown away by the
intensity of the action. This is one serious wave,
where really only the gustiest surfers on the planet
could take it on. ”

is a really cool flick and fits perfectly to what
our film festival represents’.
