Goodtime Surf and Sail

It seems that there is a desire to create and potentially forge many smiles through a blog relating to my place of employment. It'll be relating to anything shop related; the crew, the gear, the shop and a combination of two and or three of the previously mentioned aspects. Work will start at some stage when i have spare time, but now I'm going through photos of Andrew's 21st (which are well overdue).

Down below is a photo of my boss and the owner of Goodtime, Gail Austen, post mctwist, at GT. This was an unused shot from some piccies I took for upcoming exhibition at the Brisbane museum relating to the skate history of Brisbane, a history Gail basically forged.

She started the Qld Skate association, brought in riders such as Hosoi, Roksopp and Hawk for demo's through Bris and comps down south, legalised the skating of Shopping Centre car parks for Members of the QSA (i wish this was still the case) and was the first importer of Vans to this fine country.
