Most of our clients would be aware by now that The Perfect Wave is celebrating 10 years in business this year.
To celebrate, company directors Jamie and Rhonda thought it would be a pretty darn good excuse to throw a party last Friday night May 5.
So party we did down at our Carter Road, Brookvale HQ.
Coastalwatch’s chief forecaster Ben Macartney and legendary surf reporter Nick Carroll were special guests.

Ben and Nick captured the audience’s attention between beers as they educated all present on the importance of understanding swell maps so you can predict where the waves will be best on your next surf trip to Indo.
World renowned surf cinema guru Jack McCoy also told some funny stories about some of his early trips to Sumba with Banksy and Occy.
Lydia in the Middle belted out some great tunes , as did Ziggy McNeill , and there was beer, pizza, wine, ping pong and pool plus a live and silent auction.

Jamie took the mike and auctioned off some epic prizes which were donated by TPW and supporting partners all in the aid of A Perfect Foundation – our non-profit organisation doing some incredible work in the Mentawai Islands, Indonesia

Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa, Samoa.
