Avalon Beach, New South Wales, Australia is where the extraordinary big surf film director Tim Bonython now calls home. As a pup Tim spent his earlier years living at Tennyson Beach in South Australia. Tennyson Beach would lay the foundations that continue to drive Tim toward the ocean today.

Who is your idol, hero? Who inspires you the most? 

My Dad who was absolute legend! He lived 10 lives in one and he inspired me from the beginning. Even where we lived which was next to the beach at Tennyson in Adelaide the ocean was and still is my playground.
