There are few as dedicated to documenting surfing as Tim Bonython. Tim has been at it since the late 70s when he bought a super 8 camera and a ticket to Hawaii. Since then he has made some of the most iconic surf movies of the 80s, 90s and 00s.
Tim is also a die-hard believer in watching surfing on the big screen. He works tirelessly to take his Australian Surf Movie Festival on epic tours of Australian cinemas, RSL’s, surf clubs, and anywhere else they’d have him.
Over the last four years, Tim has been travelling the world. Documenting the biggest and heaviest sessions on the planet at waves like Jaws, Mavericks, Teahupo’o, Cloudbreak, The Right, Nazaré and Mullaghmore.
Finally, he is ready to emerge from the editing bay. Armed with a total of six new films, which he aims to take around the country and premiere as part of his ASMF. Dates and venues are yet to be finalised, but you can enjoy the trailer above.
We’ll keep you updated as more info on the tour becomes available.
