At the Beach with Bear

OKAY, so after what's been going on in this town lately, I felt that right now would be a good time to focus on something that is of real value to us here in the Bay.

It has been a long-held tradition in Byron, well for some at least, to make an effort to give back to the community rather than just take.

This has been done through events that raise funds for our local charities.

One such event is looming large on the horizon. It's The Australia Day Paddle 2013.

This is a purely non-profit, non-ego, family-fun event for surfers and ocean-lovers alike.

It's a chance to get together and paddle your craft across the Bay and raise money for worthy local causes along the way.

So get involved, pre register at info@australiaday! paddle.com.au or turn up to register at Watego Beach on Saturday week, January 26 at 8am.

The race starts at 10am. Little tip: considering the current parking situation at Watego, it may be an idea to either get there early or organise a drop-off.

It all finishes at the surf club with a BBQ on the deck.

So get down there and get involved. Remember to have fun, wait your turn, and surf today like you want to surf again tomorrow.
