Jules to stick to the snow


LOOKING tanned, fit and blonde, Jules Lund looks every inch the classic cool surfie dude ? but looks can be deceiving.

The Getaway presenter and a crew comprising cameraman, sound man and producer have spent the past four days on the Coffs Coast hitting the waterways for the popular Channel Nine travel program.

"I love the water so to be in one spot where you can nail three or four action water sports is just brilliant," Jules said.

"People expect me to be able to surf, but I can't. I snow board. I had to let them in on the secret when we went to Crescent (Head)."

The Getaway team arrived in the region on Sunday, after spending Saturday flying over the Antarctic.

"On Saturday we were in Antarctica for the day and then Sunday we were fishing in Wooli. This is definitely a bizarre job," Jules said.

Monday was spent diving off South Solitary Island with Jetty Dive Centre, Tuesday surfing at Crescent Head, and yesterday ocean rafting with Liquid Assets Adventure Tours.

"It has been awesome. We've had such beautiful weather," Jules said.

Getaway has visited the Coffs Coast many times over the years, and tries to come to the region at least once a year.

The stories shot over the past four days will go to air sometime during the next three to six months.

Meanwhile, The Great Outdoors will screen their segment on Coffs Harbour, shot with Ernie Dingo late last year, on Monday, February 27.
