Byron Bay Surf Festival


Don’t miss the Byron Bay Surf Festival on this weekend!

It starts Friday night with  a FREE surf movie on the foreshore near Clarke’s Beach and music from Melbourne band Bonjah. Then continues with lots of surf art, surfboards and surf culture on Saturday and Sunday. Throughout the festival you will be able to see a variety of surfing (tandem, body, handplane and more) at Wategos Beach (there’s a FREE shuttle to Wategos from Clarke’s so you don’t even have to walk).

Famous Australian surfers such as Stephanie Gilmore and Brad Gerlach  are rumoured to be in town partaking in the festivities! Make sure you get along to this iconic event- there’s something for everyone! You can pick up a program from Reception or check it out on the web at

By the way, the picture illustrating this article is Lexis Byron Bay’s very own Samantha Vanderford, who is not only an amazing teacher but an award winner surfer.
