If you’ve ever met/spent any time around Nathan Oldfield you’ll know that he’s one of the nicest, most welcoming humans going round. If you haven’t met him, know that he is he is one of the nicest, most welcoming humans going round. I’ve been following his blog, watching his videos & hearing about the guy since my brother introduced me to ‘lines of a poem’, his first film, when it first came out a few years ago, but I only got to meet & converse with the man a week or so ago at an exhibition I was lucky enough to be apart of up near his home on the Central Coast. He & his beautiful wife & 3 of the coolest kids invented were kind enough to house me for the evening after the exhibition opening festivities at the Glass Onion Society. The following morning we were up before the cloudy dawn & found some fun waves at a favourite spot nearby. Nathan was more than happy to surf & be photographed as he’s been the one on the beach behind the lens for the last long time capturing clips for his upcoming film ‘the Heart & the Sea’ & I was more than happy to shoot as photographing anything wave related has been few & far between for me of late. The waves weren’t all time but easily more than enough for both of us to get our fix. Mr Sean Finnelley also came jiving along for the ride in his 1960 something VW & duo of single fins. One short. One long. Sean is also up there in the list of guys that you wana meet. Just a humble cat more than stoked on the ocean who’s also been creating some nice threads of latte. check out his ‘Curiosity Killer’ creations HERE …Not quite satisfied with one session we gassed around the corner for a set up more suited to the longer board. This is where Sean really shines. He is a pleasure to watch & photograph on a wave…After a home cooked breakfast at the Oldfield’s I was back on the road home with a ‘there are still plenty of good people in this world’ grin on my face.
