Hi all, a new fella on the block here. I actually don't feel that new as I've been a bit of a voyeur for a while, def a few characters on board(s). Ive been surfing WA for 30+ years so there's always a range of topics I enjoy and can relate to and sounds like some solid contributors ( and a few crazy cats, just to keep it interesting).
The reason I'm making my debut today though is I'm hoping to contact Tim Bonython, as I tried to download Big Wave Project, through the link on Swellnet, the funds were deducted, vimeo reciepts issued but unfortunately I was unable to download the movie. The fault was purely on my end, I think it was a network error and I kept trying all day to no avail. Im just wondering is there any way I can still get a copy of the movie as I've been hanging to check it out.
I have tried to email and phone Tim through the contact details on his website but as yet no luck. No doubt he's busy chasing mega swell somewhere.
Sorry to make first contact on a selfish kinda angle, I will no doubt throw my five cents in from here on in, when the topics inspire. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hope your all getting a cupla, or are about to, cheers.

Tim's in Portugal at the moment (filming at Nazare), hence why he's been difficult to contact, but I'll touch base with him for you.

Thanks Ben, that would be awesome. I've got the receipt and bank statement I can supply if that helps. In this instant digital everything, 3 min edit world we now live in, I havn't purchased a surf movie for years but this one looks well worth it. I would have loved to seen it on the big screen, reminiscent of my grommie days watching tubular swells at the school hall, amazed by the antics of the older locals yelling and hooting to a strange hazy aroma. But alas I couldnt make that, so thanks again for trying.
