Another surfing artist in the line up for 'Wax On' is Kylie Roberts,  former reigning champ of my own surf club, the Bondi Girls Surf Riders. Unlike Tony Amos who never shoots surfers cause he'd rather be out there surfing, Kylie's often got her camera focused on members and friends at the club's monthly comps. 
Over the years she's captured some classic sessions out of town too, including a sensational sunrise at The Farm, a favourite surf spot of BGSR members. For the exhibition Kylie plans to print an image of surfie chicks riding the liquid gold that morning on an aluminium surface for extra shimmer. 
She experimented with this format when she designed the club's 2006 trophies, two of which I count among my prized possessions. Conditions permitting, I'll be diving in for another crack at a gong this Saturday but the real winner, as usual, will be the one who has the most fun on the day.
