Surf Culture in Australia

Surfing is to Australia what cricket is to Pakistan; it’s not the national sports, but people think of it as a sacred way to temporarily rid themselves of the worries of life. Although cricket is a dry sport and is known as ‘the gentlemen’s game’, surfing might be the opposite; it is adventurous and spiritual. Some surfers call surfing as their religion. According to them, it helps them ‘meditate through adventure’. They might be wrong in the former part, but not in the latter; surfing does meditate you through adventure – the serenity of the ocean, the colors, the sound of crashing waves, the beautiful scenes of the beach, the spectacular sight of the ocean merging with the sky – all combine to the perks of surfing. The word ‘adventurous’ describes perfectly a surf-loving Aussie, or should I only say ‘an Aussie’? Surf culture peaked during the 1950s and the 1960s in Australia (it had been there for some time during the 1940s) and influenced music, fashion and art in a strong way. Musicians composed music by merging the sound of electric guitars with the sound of crashing waves, producing the famous subgenre of rock music known as surf music. The Denvermen, the famous Australian surf-instrumental group, produced their famous hit ‘Surfside’ while another famous band called Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs took to producing much famous vocal-surf music. The Sunnyboys were surfers themselves and went on to make famous surf music in the 1980s; they made fast music which perfectly matc...

In order to do so, there are a number of things you might need to keep in mind before actually starting the process of selling the car. Some of these include: Be careful about repairs A general rule of thumb is that in order for you to sell the car quickly and for more, you should try to have it repaired before putting it on the market. However, this is not always as simple as it sounds. When thinking of doing repairs, it’s always wise to find out whether this will result in any tangible benefits or not. The best way to do this is by finding an estimate of how much you can sell the car for when it’s all fixed, and then compare the profits you make from this with if you decided to sell the car as is.

Body art tattoos was once the domain of inmates and sailors, a sign of strength or gang allegiance. Im more recent decades body art tattoos have transcended gender, class, race and stereotype to be a part of mainstream culture. Cosmetic tattooing was created to assist women who had over plucked their brows, to then being a "wake up make up" concept where eyebrows, eyeliner and lip were tattooed to take away the need to apply make up in the mornings. Cosmetic tattooing also branched out into paramedical tattooing, where breast cancer survivors could have their breast reconstruction process finalised with tattooed areola. It then expanded into being used to disguise scars, with flesh coloured pigment being used to blend scar tissue in with the flesh tones.

This is where hair transplant doctors would take a strip from the back of a clients head, and then cut the strip into tiny pieces and use the healthy follicles from the strip to transplant into a clients scalp where hair no longer grew. Scalp Micropigmentation was used in this instance to disguise the scar, which was always a few shades brighter than the rest of the scalp, from the scar tissue.
