Didgeridoo Breath is a very prestigious and popular didgeridoo organisation in Perth, Australia... they have an amazing store with exceptionally helpful staff, most of whom are expert players themselves. This is certainly the most impressive didgeridoo establishment and store in Australia and probably in the world. Bruce Copley visited and played with them in 2007, and they have created a page featuring Bruce on their website.

Snow-skiing Didgeridoo

Didgeridoo maverick Dr Bruce Copley, an accomplished snow skier, exchanged his ski poles for a didgeridoo at the Cavalese ski resort in Italy in Feb 2010. After skiing down very steep black/expert slopes at speeds reaching 50km/hr while playing his didge he was joined here at the end of his run by his family 'flying in formation' behind him.
