NSW wavesailors line up in Ballina for season of action

The NSWWA wave series is considered Australia’s premier wavesailing series and was the organiser of the recent Australian titles. On October 5, this season’s competition for wavesailors will kick off in Ballina. Fifteen professional windsurfers, including two time world champion and four time Olympian, Jessica Crisp, two time Australian champion Dan Berrry and 50 amateurs are gearing up for a season filled with great locations, wind, waves and spectacular imagery.

‘Last season’s strong wind, mast high wave conditions in Windang, showed how to shake up the final places in all divisions of the 2012/13 Severne Wave Series’, said Tim Williams, ex-president NSW WSA. ‘What was most impressive was that every competitor rose to the challenge of the conditions and supported each other through some of the toughest sailing we have ever had during a NSW WA competition.’

Event 1: Ballina – State Of Origin October 5–7

Event 2: Windang – Big Air November 16–17

Event 3: Wanda – Wave Jam December 7–8

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
