Weekend Windup Mar 15 In Byron Bay Today

It was all happening for the cameras this week. Monday was just gorgeous, Tuesday saw the first real hint of swell and by Wednesday TC Hamish was having his way with everyone. The swell was straight enough, but our sand banks took a beating last week. So it was weird chunky novelty surf suitable for experienced surfers only. Those who could handle it were turning on a good show for the folks in gallery. There were many barrels, hammerings a plenty and some scary moments when those who would’ve been wiser to watch, tried to take it on. This brings us to three vital points: (1) If you can’t turn your board to avoid hitting another surfer without falling off. (2) If you can’t paddle out without ruining someone else’s wave by getting in the way. (3) If you can’t take the hit from the white water without letting go of your board. Then you have no business paddling out into crowded surf in the first place. This is not about surfing hierarchy. It is about public safety. So please learn these skills first and learn them away from the crowd people. Then you’ll be made to feel welcome in the water .
