Invite to Sydney event for outdoor enthusiasts 24-Oct-2014 At 10:27:17 AM bjorniam
We're back with two new speakers for your inspiration and entertainment.

On Thursday the 30th of October from 7:30pm come to Stucco Housing Co-op at 197 Wilson St, Newtown, for talks by:



Pete is a very experienced adventure kitesurfer, originally a competition sailor he knows the wind like no-one else I know. He is well-known in the Sydney kite community for his energy and time spent helping other and his daring downwinder surfaris.

Pete will be sharing the story of his part in the world-first kite crossing of the Torres strait between QLD and Papua New Guinea riding, of all things, an unstrapped surfboard for over 400km in challenging wind and sea conditions. Far from being a holiday style cruise this expedition involved a range of distinct and unique challenges, which required a some out-there techniques and great buckets of endurance. But would he do it again?... I don't know, let's ask him on the night. BYO seasickness medications!




Damien is an Australian climber of 20+ years experience. He is also the world authority on Antarctic climbing, having literally written the book on the subject after 10 trips to climb Antarctica’s highest peaks and two South pole expeditions. He has also climbed in the Andes, Karakoram, Pamirs and Himalaya. He even has a glacier named after him.

Besides his own tales of hair-raising adventures, he will be sharing insights into the different "characters" of the unique people who have explored the mountains of Antarctica over the last century.


As usual it's all for free.

Just BYO drinks, and we'll provide the stoke.

Doors will open at 7:30pm and speakers from 8pm sharp.
Kicking on to the Royal Hotel after the talks wrap up.

Tell your friends!

Tip 1: If someone has closed the door just hang around for a few minutes and we'll let you in.
Tip 2: If there is no more room on the dozen or more couches and you don't feel like standing then bring something to sit on.
Tip 3: There are many bottle shops within a 10min walk, so no excuses.
