Flick Palmateer

By Kane Skennar | Featuring Felicity Palmateer
Gold Coast, Australia
10/11/2015

As photographers and stylists, we encounter models on a daily basis. Each shoot is spent sharing interests, opinions and ideas. No day is ever the same, nor is every model. More than their job description, more than just a stereotype; not just a pretty face, but a resident of the world. Flick Palmateer is a Model Citizen.

--

Felicity Tamasyn Palmateer is a surfer, artist and model who hails from the wild west in Margaret River but now calls the Gold Coast home.

Fresh from her epic journey to the Seychelles with Lauren Hill and Ming Nom Chong, Flick wasted no time jumping back on board, shooting for Billabong’s new women’s surf capsule collection with Kane Skennar in Byron Bay. 

We stuck around and got to know Flick a little better.

Travel Guides

  1. Darwin and Tiwi Islands

    We explore the Northern Territory outback, the local Darwin food, bar and music scene and the nearby Tiwi Islands for a cultural hit and some infamous Barra fishing with the local indigenous guides.

  2. The Whitsundays travel guide

    "I''ve travelled around the world and the most beautiful place i have ever seen is in our backyard - the Whitsundays” - Emily Hutchinson @emelinaah
    We planned a fun 8-day Whitsunday holiday filled with reef diving, island hopping, water activities and plenty of time to relax. The trip kicked off with three days in Airlie Beach which was enough time to chat to the locals and get the inside story on the best things to do and explore in the Whitsundays. Every conversation pointed to two things: a one-day Cruise Whitsundays dive trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef and a sea plane flight over Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach with Air Whitsunday. Then we spent four leisurely days on a #gobareboating catamaran exploring the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Thanks to our very own skipper (a local who knew just the right places), we stumbled across our own secret beaches, found hidden gems and watched the tropical Whitsunday world go by. Our trip ended with an overnight stay on glorious Hamilton Island - and a chance to mix water sports and hiking activities with chill outs by the resort pool and enjoy quality restaurant and cocktail time.
