A unique gathering of Surfing industry personalities and world reknown surfers Mark Richards, Wayne ‘Rabbit’ Bartholomew, Peter ‘PT’ Townend and David ‘Rasta’ Rastovich gather for Salts & Suits.
Join Phil Jarratt, Tim Baker and friends for an evening of insightful and candid commentary on the state of the surfing industry. Phil Jarratt penned Salt & Suits in 2010 and told the amazing true story of how a bunch of young beach bums turned their passion for surfing into the worlds fastest growing leisure industry.
At the close of Salts & Suits the global surfing industry was still riding that endless summer of success, but the cracks were already beginning to show. Fast forward to to 2013 and plunging share prices and takeover bids make it timely to ask where that billion dollar industry is at now.
Never shy of controversy, Phil Jarratt and Tim Baker will lead an entertaining and surf industry savvy panel and the audience on an insightful, controversial and passionate discussion on the fate of the modern surf industry.
