Beautiful conditions down at Queenscliff on Saturday morning

On Saturday I had the privilege to shoot a fundraising event in which, 24 of Sydney’s corporate surfers led by Ambassador Richard Grellman AM combined forces to raise awareness around the modifiable lifestyle factors for improving brain health, as part of the 5th Wipeout Dementia campaign.  The gruelling four week strength for surfing course culminated in a Surf Off on Saturday where participants demonstrated their newly honed skills while raising a whopping $96,000 for research at the Centre for Healthy Brain Ageing (CHeBA).

Ambassadors are Richard Grellman AM (Chairman of IPH Limited, AMP Foundation) and former Chairman of the Association of Surfing Professionals (Int) Ltd) and 1978 World Surfing Champion Wayne Rabbit Bartholomew.
