Byron Bay Malibu Classic

It was a classic weekend full of amazing waves and even more amazingly inspirational surfing. Each day started of with lumps and bumps across the faces due to the westerly wind, which made the mornings feel like winter. But as the day moved along, out came the sun, the wind turned offshore and the log riders put on performances that had to be seen! Matty Aldridge won the old mal, with the most amazing hang ten in the most critical momment, right above the cungie rock. He made it look so effortless, along with shredders Brett Caller and Isaac Fields they dominated the 2 foot perfect reeling right handers at Wategoes.

I'm always drop jawed at the beauty and serence essence of the Byron landscape. Dolphins leaping out of the water, stingrays swimming underneath you, the sky cobalt blue and perfect log waves reeeling along.
