Soli becalmed in NSW Pro surf series

Local surfer Soli Bailey has finished in second place at the Mad Mex Maroubra Pro World Surf League Qualifying Series event held at Sydney’s Maroubra beach last weekend.

What a great festival Falls was.

As a local neighbour, I would like to thank the organisers and patrons for a really well-run, well-organised and well-supported festival.

I was at first opposed to the festival site. Now after Splendour and Falls we cannot complain when 15,000–25,000 are having so much fun.

As we learn and see what the owners of the site are doing and have planned we are impressed. Thank you.

Mark Wato, Billinudgel
