Margaret River Press once again partnered with the Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix to celebrate the opening of the exhibition 'Coast' and launch our publication 'Surfing Down South'. Janet Holmes à Court launched both the exhibition and book. In her launch speech she said she loved the book and bought six copies to give away, one of which will be given to Richard Tognetti, Artistic Director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra who a few years ago had presented 'The Reef' a performance piece involving musicians and surfers. She congratulated Sue-Lyn and the Press on the publication which she said was historically and culturally significant.
Many pioneering surfers came along with family and friends some of who travelled from Perth for the event. In keeping with tradition, they retired to Caves House to reminiscent about the good old days.
