Nice Web App – Convert Anything

This is more a reminder for me – however, great little web app if you’re caught out and need to get a file into a format that works for you. Excel to PDF etc.

They claim they can convert anything – worth a look

Future Past and Present

Back in 2010 I wrote an article on the WSM blog about what the future holds in the eyes of a guy known as Ray Kurzweil. Ray is a very well known futurist. (The full article can still be seen here). The reason I’m back looking at his predictions is one that really struck a cord with me

Backyard Shaping

Been shaping a few boards over the years (simple ones with simple tints) but about to test myself with a traditional single fin longboard for my 12 year old. Photos as I progress. Oh and also a 5’8″ diamond tail quad with fabric inlay

LoFi Photos

Some general shots – all LoFi from iPhones or other crappy camera’s and different filters

I love Noosa and so many of these shots are just things I see when out and about. It’s one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Beaches are world class and the surf is incredible when it works. Crowds are not much fun but you learn to live with it.

Noosa

Living and working here in Noosa has given me some unbelievable opportunities to work and raise a family surrounded by such beauty.
