I’ve made a few visits to the Torquay Pub this summer (Spiderbait/dinner) and it’s kinda weird stepping into a place I’ve been going to since I was 16 (hint hint… back in the seventies).
Summer is here. The sun is out, our beaches are crowded and surfers are riding waves from one end of the coast to another so it must be the perfect time to talk about… football!
January 2020 will see the running of the 10th annual Bells Beach Surf Film Festival.
It would be a great shame if these beaches were covered in black sludge… all because our politicians and the Australian regulator valued profit before people.
Our beaches have been bathed in some beautiful sunshine lately. It has been fantastic to drag the boardshorts out of winter storage, give them a shake and put them back on for another season of summer fun in the sun.
Since the late sixties, Rip Curl has grown from the kitchen and front room of a house in Torquay into a multi-million dollar surfing company with surf shops scattered around the globe.
