Whale of a time, . For those of us who surf it was indeed a very strange day in Byron Bay. The swell was forecast to be from the south. Which although it’s not the best direction you could ask for here, it’ll do if it’s big enough. It was well and truly big enough, yet not a ripple was even making it into the bay.

So there we were, mid afternoon, we’d searched everywhere for a rideable wave and found almost nothing. This is rare as we’re easily pleased.
