Well that southerly change didn’t last very long, . But the respite we experienced from the northerlies was joy. We even got to see just a little bit of southerly swell. Producing a few little peaks around the ocean side for the little whiteboard set and there were even some little slides in the bay for the loggers. Now we don’t like to scare people, but we do believe in keeping people informed. Several of the local crew, have spotted a large shark cruising around Watego’s of late. This is nothing unusual especially at this time of year. Whales migrating with their young attract whale watchers, that’s a given. But they also attract predators; it’s just the way it is in Byron bay. I saw it today while having a few waves at Wategos myself. What I can tell you is this, it’s about four metres in length and really thick. Its pectoral fins are sticking out almost at right angles and it’s black on its back fading to light grey and white around its sides. If I had to guess I’d say it’s a White Pointer. Just be aware folks. It’s that time of year in Byron Bay. Little hint, those big guys really stink. If you’re surfing and you suddenly notice a strong fishy smell, it’s a good idea to go in for a little rest. After all sometimes it’s just nice to just sit and watch, .
To all those joyous folks who chose to pose, thank you, for being here with us .
