The fight for the bight is at a crucial stage.

“The people of Australia and beyond have spoken up for the Great Australian Bight. Tens of thousands of people from all over the country have paddled out to protest Equinor’s intention to turn the Bight into a deep water oil field. Over 30,000 people wrote to the industry regulator formally opposing Equinor’s plan.

Industry regulator NOPSEMA have requested Equinor revise their environment plan and have given them 60 days to do so. Meanwhile the Federal Government’s Independent Audit into NOPSEMA’s consideration of exploration in the Bight has commenced.

NOPSEMA’s judgment of the revised environmental plan is expected to drop as early as September which is in line with Equinor’s plans to begin exploratory drilling in 2020.

The Fight for the Bight is far from over. We need to keep the pressure on Equinor and on the Federal Government. The Bight needs to remain wild and free.”

Building The Revolution

Buillding The Revolution from Nick__films on Vimeo.

Stoked to have had this rad little film put together by Nick Skate. Nick approached us a few months back to ask if he could film me shaping a board in our shop shaping bay and then spent countless hours filming Vortex Team Riders Taj Sleeman, Jai Henry and Will Clarkson surfing during the cold winter months for a school project. Highlighting the importance of supporting local retail shops, the film has received international attention and support from word surf retail support group “Building The Revolution”. Well Done Nick, the film came up awesome, stoked you picked us to base your film around and glad we could help out.
