Thirty of his colleagues nominated Mr Norwell for ‘The Knock of Cash’ promotion. Many of these colleagues as well as surfing mates such as Glenn Fenwickwere instrumental in organising the inaugural Paul Norwell Memorial Paddle Out.

“We spent many days here surfing so we decided as a surfing community, we’d organise this and do what he wished. I’m sure he approved,’’ Mr Fenwick said.

Fellow paramedic and long-time family friend Dale Hughes said The Farm was Mr Norwell’s favourite spot.

“Aparamedic’s life is pretty stressful, we all look for strategies to de-stress –this was Paul’s. He spentmost of his days off here,’’ Mr Hughes said.

Hesaid his matewaswell-loved and respected.

“From the surfers down here at The Farm to his work colleagues and his immediate family, Paul had a calm persona about him and ready smile,’’ he said.

“We are going to spread his ashes today, have a circle of remembrance and few quite prayers for him.We are here to remember our mate who went too soon.’’

Lisa Norwell said it was a tough day but her husband requested his ashes be spread out to sea.

“This [The Farm] was his second home. This is what he wanted,’’ she said.

“We miss him dearly. He was a friend to everybody, a passionate paramedic and just an adored husband and father.’’

John Norwell said it was only right that his son chose The Farm as his final resting place.

“He loved this place. This is where he surfed most of his life. I also surfed here in the 60’s before the land was developed,’’ Mr Norwell said.

Whole new look for Marvel

Out of body experience: Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One gives Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr Steven Strange a push in Doctor Strange, rated M and in Hoyts cinemas now.Marvel Studios promised a whole new style for its latest offering and it sure delivered.
Nanjing Night Net

Doctor Strange feels quite unlike anything the studio has created before.

It’s a tighter origin story than Captain American, Thor or even Iron Man.

Itsclosest comparison visually is Guardians of the Galaxy, but even that’s a stretch.

Dr Steven Strange (Oscar-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, inevitably finding himself in a superhero movie) himself has all the arrogance of Tony Stark without the one-liners to redeem himself.

The film introduces Strange, an exceptionally talented and intelligent surgeon, working at a hospital in New York.

He is condescending to those below him, flirts with his ex-girlfriend Christine (the incomparable Rachel McAdams) and thinks more highly of himself than he has a right to. But the good times can’t last, of course, and a devastating car crash (the likes of which Along Came a Spider could only dream of) leaves Strange horribly injured and unable to continue surgical work.

This is where the origin story really kicks in, with Strange travelling to Kathmandu, Nepal to seek a treatment which helped a former paraplegic get back on his feet, literally.

He meets the mysteriously named sorcerer The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton, causing controversy as a white woman playing a character portrayed in the comics as an Asian man), allies in Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor, always brilliant) and Wong (Benedict Wong, Ejiofor’s The Martian co-star) and learns some mysteries of the universe he never knew existed.

In Nepal the film takes a turn for the psychedelic, bringing the 1960s influences of the comics to the screen.

The visual effects are quite unlike anything we’ve seen in a superhero movie before –this feels rather more like a sci-fi adventure (think Jumper, Chronicle, Inception).

The consistently creepy Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) has a gleeful time as primary villainKaecilius and rocks the coolest make-up in the film.

Marvel has definitely stepped up its game with Doctor Strange and opened up the cinematic universe to uncharted territories.

Be sure to stick around for the post-credit scene to see a very familiar face.
