Fun with the Newy Crew


Newy Crew Boardriders had their monthly competition on Sunday at New Brighton Beach. There was a fantastic turnout again for this renewed local surf event.

The club would like to encourage more families and friends to come down and join in this year’s comp because it’s not too late.

Everyone did extremely well on the weekend and the conditions were light westerly winds with clean waves and fun 2–3-foot barrelling.

Perfect for experienced and new surfers.

It was a great day for families to get together and enjoy the ocean.

The event results were:

U12 boys – Seb, Fin, Finely, Sonny, Kai; Junior boys – Oliver, Bawoo, Peyote, Jasper; U12 girls – Zoe, Sienna; Junior girls Tandia, Poppy, Kaia, Kala; Open Men – Dan, Jeremy, Brett, Jayden; Masters – Corey, Fozz, Bryce, Macca.

Everyone is invited to come on down to the next comp on April 20 at the Newy Shop.

For info about the club, phone Bryce 0402 008 335.

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.”
