Next years Wooden Board Day will be part of the Byron Bay Surf Festival

It is great to be joining forces with the Byron Bay Surf Festival next year, as it is by far the best surf festival at one of Australia's iconic surf towns. A place we all love and where we have had great times and waves. With their support, we will be part of the "Woodshed" precinct.

"Australia's largest gathering of Wooden surfboards and those that make them!! We've dedicated a special area of the Surf Art Markets to the wood sniffers. Chat with master shaper and designer Tom Wegener, along with Joel Fitzgerald, Andy Ceglinski, Grant Newby and more. If you dig wood don’t miss this timber buffet, including workshops, demo's and the latest and greatest in innovation and  designs of wooden surfboards!"
 There will be lots of people and lots to do and see. Anything surf related with be on show once again.

 So guys save the date and get that latest project board finished to bring along to the Woodshed. Be part of what will be a great weekend to showcase your passion, your hobby and spend time surrounded by others that love it as much as you. It is the same format as what we have had at Currumbin for the last 8 years, in that it is non commercial, non competetive and a great chance to meet others that have dedicated the time and effort that goes into building a wooden board. There will be a diverse collection of people to answer all those questions that building wooden boards throws up at you.

Saturday we will be in the park from 9am to 4.30pm, with all the other markets and activities. Sunday you will be able to surf and swap boards at Wategos Beach at the " Freestyle and Stoke surf sessions".

"On Sunday we invite you to join a day of fun and unique surfing sessions hosted at Australia's most easterly point, Wategos Beach. Open to young and old, including finless, tandem, logs, mermaids, fish, soft, and the new surfer/shaper! Unlike other surf festivals this is not a competitive day, it's all about the pure stoke of freestyling your own creative way across the wave on a surf craft of your choice. Lots of cool happening, including $1000 for the winner of the Party Wave Dash - for Cash. A fun one to watch!" 

If you are thinking of being part of the day and have any question please feel free to contact me.  and check out the for updates and details of all that is happening at this great event.
