The road trip from the Sydney to the Gold coast takes a route along the east coast of Australia
that is an institution for any surfer. The 1000km stretch of coast houses not only Australia’s, but
some of the worlds best beach breaks... It’s also dotted with a handful of world class point breaks.
National Highway Number 1 - It doesn’t disappoint from it’s name and is rated Australia’s top
tourism drive. It has beautiful scenery with iconic landmarks, long roads, colourful locals and
empty beaches. A surf adventurers dream.

Land Rover in Australia is a major supporter of the surf industry and beach lifestyle, sponsoring
the Quiksilver Pro, the first stop on the Association of Surfing professionals calendar and also
sponsor of Bondi Beach photographer Eugene Tan from Aquabumps. In a collaboration between
both Aquabumps and Land Rover Justin worked on the film ‘Road to the Pro’ documenting
Eugene Tan and pro surfers Chris Friend, Blake Thornton and Pama Davies traveling from
Sydney to the Gold Coast in a Land Rover to the Quiksilver Pro.

Justin Produced storyboards, did all art direction, produced the film, sourced all music, filmed
on the trip, edited the film and delivered a final product.
