The knack boys have been pretty busy as late working on site at the Billabong World Junior Championships being held at North Narrabeen. With Rob behind the camera and juzzy producing and editing daily highlights and a tv show, the guys have been eyeballing some of the hottest young surfers in the world. Heres a couple snaps from Juzzy, from a lay day free session.
Stay tuned to KnackStudios for upcoming vids!
Yep thats for sure, it was an insane weekend! I can barely walk after swimming around all Sunday, beating rips and dodging blueys….time of my life! Floating around in the soup with the planets best surfers, in your own backyard, you ain’t going to better that!
I thought ahead and hired a 200m port from the Aquatech crew down the Gong. It was a challenge to shoot with; focus flying all over the shop, and water drops I don’t usually have to worry about too much when shooting with a dome port. The best fun Ive had in years though! Bondi really turned the taps on and delivered some sizable chunks for the boys to play with.
Check some of my results here.

3. Your film must be no longer than seven minutes
