What a glorious surprise that was, . All the weather reports and signs were pointing to more northerlies. Yet it was warm and sunny with a light south easterly all day, didn’t see that coming, but it was just what the doctor ordered to keep the crew smiling in Byron Bay Today. The swell jumped just a little from the south, and provided you had a board with plenty of floatation, there were some fun waves to be had. Now we’ve had a few emails today from folks concerned about sharks. Well hate to tell you, but there was another shark sighting today, thankfully not by me though. I had two surfs today between shoots, which is a luxury for me, and I saw nothing. I did however get the stinky fish smell several times again today. Like I say folks you don’t need to be alarmed or afraid, just exercise a little common sense at this time of year. If you don’t swim or surf at dusk or dawn or when the water is really murky or full of bait fish, then your chances of an encounter are greatly reduced. Keep those simple guidelines in place and you’ll have very little to worry about. Fact is you have more chance of getting struck by lightning. It’s just the way it is at this time of year. It’s not just Byron Bay either, it’s the whole east coast. As those whales head south with their newborns it’s only natural for the big predators to follow them. As the young ones make easy prey. So be aware not scared. Simply remember that you’re dealing with nature on natures terms and all will be well, .
To all those joyous folks who chose to pose, thank you, for being here with us .
Don’t forget to check the photos and comments carefully each day, to see if we’ve drawn your name to win a freebee .
