Surfing In Byron


Sunset Session : Byron Bay : Photo by Kirra Cheers

With my Common Ground partner Johnny Abegg in the land of the long white cloud… surfing, i thought we’d do a feature on just that… Byron style.

With the beaches in the Byron shire being some of the best in Australia we so are lucky and privileged to be able to surf these beaches daily. Whether it be an early down at Broken Head with the swell wrapping around the point or a sunset session at Wategos with just you and a few of your mates, there is something very special about Surfing in Byron.

We share the water with dolphins, whales, string rays and countless other marine life that pop up from time to time to say hi while you are waiting for the next set.

We hope you all get to do some Surfing in Byron some time soon, you’ll be hooked.. we are!
