Leading up to Moran Sylvania’s ‘Welcome to Summer, Big Wednesday’ event on 27th November we went on the search for residents who were keen surfers! We were super excited when resident Lex Barnett shared some of his surfing photo’s, featuring action shots of him taking on the big surf at the age of 20 in Bali.
Lex’s passion for surfing started when he was just five years old and as a proud member of Garie Board Riders Club he was still surfing up until last year. Lex has been lucky enough to have surfed some of the worlds top surf spots. “Some of my favourite surf locations are Bali’s Uluwatu, Jeffrey’s Bay South Africa and the Malé Atolls in the Maldives.” Said Lex. Fortunately his 34-year long career as an aircraft engineer at Qantas enabled him to hop on a plane and travel to wherever the surf was good.
The ‘Welcome to Summer, Big Wednesday’ event will have a summer vibe, celebrating all things beachy and includes a screening of the surf movie ‘Big Wednesday’ in our in-house cinema.
Some of the Garie Board Riders Club members will be joining Lex and Anne as their guests for lunch – no doubt there will be some great stories and happy memories shared amongst this group of lifelong friends.
