It looks like the worst of that weather is over, . But egad, what a mess? But the bay will recover and fairly quickly I suspect, things grow pretty fast round here. But the beaches, well that may take a little longer. Some folks are talking years, but I think that’s just Byron Bay newcomer shock. Those of us who’ve been here long enough have seen this all before. The sand moves up and down the coast pretty fast and regularly around here. We’ve seen the beaches stripped back to rock before, and without the aid of a storm. It’s just that a storm will do it so quickly and efficiently that some folks get a little freaked out about it. A little safety tip folks, stay away from the edge of the eroded areas, it’s quite unstable at the moment. Of course all that sand movement means new sandbanks forming all over the place. Every cloud does indeed have a silver lining; one just has to look for it. For surfers and beachgoers amongst us it means it’s exploration time again. It’s time to ferret out the new breaks that are popping up and find out which others have been destroyed. So put a smile on your dial and get out there and start looking. It’s all part of the fun of being a surfer, especially.
To all those wonderful people who chose to pose we’d just like to say. Thank you for being here with us .
