So what are the impacts for us on the Bellarine and Surf Coasts?
Nat is now seventy and still surfs.
Cigarette butts are small, toxic time bombs that can have a huge impact on our beaches and the ocean.
Warm water, cafes, night surfing, no sharks…. what’s not to like about a surf pool in Melbourne!
The car was packed with bags and boards… It was my first real road trip up the East Coast of Australia in almost 20 years.
Watching the professional surfing in Brazil recently and it was amazing to see 11-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater still paddling around terrorising competitors half his age.
This winter I packed the family into the car and the boards on top. I was done with the cold and the rain. I needed to head north…. A road trip was in order.
The popularity of surfing is marked by a number of distinct signposts in history.
Bells, Sunset, Cloudbreak… the bigger and uglier the waves, the better Kong surfed.
What a day, what a contest. Bells had thrown up the most challenging waves in decades. Its reputation was enhanced for another generation of surfers around the world.
