and Event Director Tim Bonython says, “the
number one objective of the Fructis Style Surf
Hair Australian Surf Movie Festival is to have
surf movies on the big screen come seriously alive!

friends in an auditorium hooting surfers riding
giant waves and being part of the surf stoke that
surf flicks on a big screen create.”
AT 26th OCTOBER 2007
The Fructis Style Australian Surf Movie Festival
presented by Tooheys Extra Dry has now secured
access to the most incredible action from Tasmania's
hell wave, Shipsterns Bluff. On 22 October 2007,
Shipsterns Bluff erupted with some of the nastiest
waves ever surfed there, around 15 to 20 feet,
with offshore winds and clear sunny skies.
surfing that went down on this day was mind numbing.
One mistake and death was a real possibility,”
says event director Tim Bonython.
add this footage to the festival is the absolute
icing on the cake,” says Bonython. With
Brook Sylvester's Cyclop's film, 'The One Eyed
Monster' and Tim Bonython’s 'Three Days
at OURS', the action will be pretty crazy when
watching it all on the big screen.

Australia, produced by Tim Bonython takes the
viewer 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
by Tim Bonython
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. ”

the Barrel won The Best Cinematography in this
years Surfer Poll and Video Awards in the US run
last month. This feature film documents the lives
of four unique and talented surfers: Kelly Slater,
Rob Machado, Kalani Robb and Australia’s
and world renowned surf water cameraman Mike Prickett
capture surfing from so many unique angles. The
entire project is filmed in 16 mm, super 16 mm,
and high definition. Amazing underwater barrel
shots and masterful jet-ski angles from exotic
surf destinations such as Teahupo’o, Tahiti
make this movie stand out from the crowd. Bonython
enthuses, ‘this film is a really cool flick
and fits perfectly to what our film festival represents’.
