Coasting : Issue 8 Feb 2010
3 www.coastingtoday.com.au Go to www.coastingtoday.com.au for regular Central Coast news updates, and to see the current Coasting magazine, and past editions, in Real View, Editor: David Stewart Sales Sharon manager: Goodman Design: Geraldine Williams Advertising: Phone 4979 5550 Cover images: • Matt Wilkinson in action at the ASP Billabong World Junior Surfing Championships at North Narrabeen. Picture by Steve Robertson. • Matt Wilkinson portrait. Picture by Rip Curl/Shorty. You've got to respect those Central Coasters who earn a living from doing something that they really love. While the rest of us are grinding away in a shop or office, on the road or on a worksite, or in a factory, those other Central Coasters are getting paid to hit golf balls, play music, kick a footy or otherwise enjoy doing something that the rest of us would be happy to pay to do. Consider local Matt Wilkinson to be one of the lucky ones. He's one of a growing band of elite Central Coast surfers in the sport's Big Show. Wilkinson has followed his dream all the way to the World Championship Tour, and his love for the sport just oozes from our cover story. You can put local Israel Cannan into that category, too. The multi-talented actor, singer and musician is about to embark on a national tour with a difference. And if you enjoy a good local success story, then you'll turn straight to page 10 for our piece on local woman Leanne Faulkner who founded the Billie Goat Soap business which is now stocking major retail chains in Australia and overseas with a range of products that she devised from scratch on her Ourimbah property. Our monthly photo essays have become one of the most popular features of the magazine, and this month's offering is something special. Photographer Aaron Brown braved the elements to capture all of the music, mud and mayhem of the colourful Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts and Music Festival at Glenworth Valley, and his pictures are featured over four pages. Enjoy!
