The ST Images bus has been up north since last Thursday doing some commercial jobs the Big 4 caravan parks at Yamba and Tweed Heads. We are in between pit stops at the moment, enjoying some beautiful Byron Bay magic. This pic taken an hour ago just up from one of my favourites waves.
Today's post is about a good mate of mine, Mick Matthews! Mick surfs at my local way more than anyone else and is probably the keenest surfer I know. He spends his non-surfing time tinkering around in his shaping shed making all sorts of weird and wonderful creations. He experiments with epoxy, timber veneers, balsa and some very funky resin tints. His "day job" is making and fitting blinds, I reckon he took this up to keep everyone in the dark while he enjoys the early morning sessions to himself. This bloke is either surfing or thinking about surfing 24/7 and anyone that does that can sit by my fire anytime they like.

The new Pacific Longboarder magazine has just hit the shelves and one of our pics of Rosie Locke features on Page 3. This shot was taken at the lovely first point, Noosa Heads in March. The Australian longboarding magazine is also out and I have 8 or 9 photos in that one too. Both mags are a great read and the ALB mag comes with a free DVD.
Local lad, Shaun Cansdell was the stand out surfer on the first day of competition at the Jesus Pro Am yesterday at Diggers. The finals finish up today, a new gallery will be posted on our website: stimages.com.au early next week

I am going to be working with Jack Lynch a fair bit over the next few years... his surfing is great to photograph. I love the way the this kid loves surfing. The bug has bitten him real bad. Jack got a epic little blog running too, you can find it at http://kookinstuff.blogspot.com/
