Former professional surfer Stuart Bedford Brown is "carving it up" with a television show he has just sold in the United States and Japan. "To make three series and sell them overseas is a dream come true for me," said Bedford Brown, 34, who produce Foxtel surf show, Ra, with former world- champion surfer Barton Lynch. "Ra (named after the sun god) is a magazine- style show and includes surfing, skateboarding, snowboarding, longboarding and body boarding." The surfing duo first took their project to Network Ten three years ago but, after the first series, it was picked up by Foxtel and aired on Fox 8. It has a growing audience overseas and has just been sold to a cable network in the US. It can also be seen in Japan, France, England, Ireland, Mexico and the Middle East. Bedford Brown and Lynch are also finalising a Ra clothing range.
