General

It is a very fun wave but is spoit by the amount of kooks that chose to surf there and as a local please don't come to Byron and hassle us because you will end up getting bashed up.

Byron Bay, Day 1 - This was the first time I'd surfed in about ten years. Having been a skater and a snow boarder, I don't have trouble getting vertical, but it took me a few rounds before I was able to control things comfortably. After about two hours, th

Looking for Paola - I am looking for a girl I met in Bali. She lives in Byron Bay. I believe her family lived in Chile. I know she was a vet in Chile. Anyone know her.

monkeys arse. - The wreck can be a pretty decent surf spot, but only when its pumping. Main beach tends to draw in back packers who have just scored themselves a board and walk to the beach thinking they can paddle out anywhere. Consequently it can get pretty packed and tempers can flare up real quick. The Pass is the same, super nice break (when there's swell)but generally too busy on a weekend. In my opinion tallows/broken head (Cape Byron headland) is a great surf spot, it can get pretty gnarley and it's definately not for beginners, so at least there arn't any back packers cramming the line up. If your'e prepared for a little drive then Lennox heads is definately the way forward. Some awsome breaks (and cool locals)
