    Australian Surf Housings?

    Hi
    With the imminent arrival of my Canon 7D I am considering getting myself a surf housing for it. Can anyone advise me if there are any Australian companies that make them? I'd like to avoid importing one if possible. I have found Aquatech and so far that's it.
    thanks

    AquaTech is pretty much the only local producer.. there' couple others making custom housings out of the garage, but nothing compared to the professional housings AquaTech offers.. did I reply to your email? had a few responses this week so not sure which one was yours..

    Another one to try and track down, is Lightspeed Housings, it's a guy operating out of NSW. The guy is nothing but professional, and this is reflected in his product. I had one made (which was actually the first one he made) and it was perfect.

    That was some years ago, so I have lost contact details for him, but some googling should find it!
