Coasting : Issue 11 May 2010
3 www.coastingtoday.com.au COASTING FEATURE 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: Nandina Vines Advertising: Phone 4979 5550 Cover images: • Jarrad McVeigh in action for the Sydney Swans at Skilled Stadium. Picture by Sebastian Costanzo. • Sam Woods of Vibrant Concepts, and model, Alex. Picture by Aaron Brown. • Shoal Bay Resort and Spa. Coasting loves a good local success story. So we reckon we've kicked a goal with our cover story on Jarrad McVeigh. Jarrad gives us a great insight into how he and his brother Mark followed their unshakeable childhood football dreams all the way from their backyard at Tumbi Umbi into the AFL. And we love a good anecdote. So we were interested to learn about the exact type of high-pressure scenario that tests Jarrad's competitive nerve. And, no, it's not when he's lining up for a shot at goal from near the boundary line in front of a packed house at the Sydney Cricket Ground. What really gives Jarrad the hippy hippy shakes is when he's playing FIFA Soccer on the PlayStation with his team-mates in one of their weekly tournaments. "It can be stressful times when you're down [on the scoreboard] and you're in a round- robin," Jarrad laughed. "We take it quite seriously." Our music interview is with Mark Moldre, a former member of the band Hitchcock's Regret, who has released his debut solo album. Mark's frank musings on the differences between recording as a solo artist and as the member of a democratic band are a highlight of a wide ranging interview. We cop a spray aboard the jet boat Cheeky Bee, in our High Adrenaline series, and we continue the adventure theme with a follow-up story on local adventurer Shane Pophfer who last month had a life-and-death decision to make at an altitude of 6400 metres on Mount Aconcagua, in Argentina. There's a winter fashion spread, a hairstyle makeover, and plenty of delicious dining pages to savour.
