    Happy skysurfer.com.au anniversary Luke! 7 years this week since the day in our tiny loungeroom in Toowoomba when you selected "activate". An amazing project that has brought so much colour to our lives, and brought so many skydivers together for friendship, discussion, fun and information. Some of those on-line contacts have become our most treasured and enduring friendships. Love our skysurfer.com.au team, love your work xxx
