Byron Bay Weekender

16 10 2010

With torrential rainfall in the whole area, we made the most of our 3-day weekend and headed down to Byron Bay for a weekend of surfing and relaxing. Along the way down, we stopped off in Kingscliff to check the diving condition, but the murky water, high winds, and ripping current kept us out of the water. Instead, we stopped off for some really good butcher paper style fish & chips at a local fish market, and visited a tropical fruit farm with the largest avocados I’ve ever seen. I spent the entirety of the following day surfing in heavy rainfall at The Wreck in Byron Bay with shoulder-high waves, offshore winds, and few other surfers. I had a great session, and afterwards, we went out to the local bar, the Cheeky Monkey, and had calamari, prawns, and chips for $2!
