Can you tell us little bit about where you are from and how you got into surfing?
Simon: I grew up on the coast and was always around the ocean. I started getting into surfing while at high school and have been hooked since.
Nick: I'm originally from Tasmania, but I've been living in Newcastle NSW for the last 4 years. Mum bought me my first board when I was 12, a Nick Stranger thruster, had stickers all over it and 3 fins - 3 fins we're cool then!
How did you get started in filmmaking and why? Was it something you studied or were you self taught?
ST: I've had an interest in filmmaking for a long while. When I was at high school the librarian saw my interest and allowed me to borrow the school camera on weekends. I'd mostly just film my friends skateboarding and surfing. Soon after I got my own second hand high 8 camera and I just took it with me to the beach and I'd get a few clips when I was done surfing. Over time I've started to surf less and film more, but now Sally is done I'm looking forward to more time in the ocean. Film school is something I'm considering for the future, but so far I have had no formal training. If I don't know how to do something I just Google it...
