One of Gold Coasts best surfing photographers, Simon “Swilly” Williams, will be displaying prints of his photographs of local World Champions Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Steph Gilmore and others at The Strand at Coolangatta throughout February 2016.
The Strand will be home to the 10 prints in the exhibition until they are auctioned off to raise funds for the Gold Coast World Surfing Reserve Inc. The southern Gold Coast has been designated as the 8th World Surfing Reserve, with the official dedication ceremony to be held at Snapper Rocks on 9 March 2016, recognising the area globally for its iconic point breaks.
The Strand Marketing Manager, Sarah Clasen, said The Strand was honoured to be involved in this historic occasion for surfing.
“It will be fantastic to see these well-known local faces up around the Atrium. Everyone can view the public exhibition for free, and we even hope to see some of the stars of the prints join us at The Strand to view this larger-than-life exhibition themselves throughout February.”
