Join Clarkes Beach paddle out this weekend to stop massive oil and gas field project

Hundreds of local surfers and water-lovers will paddle out at Clarke’s Beach over the weekend to protest against a massive oil and gas field proposed for the NSW coast.

It was an Australian story as the stars of the surfing world swapped their rashies for glad rags on the Gold Coast last night for the 2015 World Surf League (WSL) Awards.

Australians, in particularly those from the NSW north coast, were the stand-out winners on the night taking a bunch of awards on the world stage.

Stephanie Gilmore (Kingscliff),  Tyler Wright (Lennox Head) and Mick Fanning (Tweed Heads) just to name a few, took home the world’s most prestigious surfing awards trophies on the night.

We are just about losing count of how many times Stephanie has won this award, yet again taking out top honours in the women’s division and hot on her find Tyler Wright was runner-up.

  1. We have just about lost count of how many North Coast toes are hanging over the nose of their boards winning awards.
    Stephanie Gilmore, Tyler Wright and Mick Fanning were just three who toe-nailed an award last night and nailed it to the wall for the 2015 World Surf League (WSL) Awards on the Gold Coast.
    There is a big wave from the hands for the NSW north coast as they thunder down onto the beach.
    Stephanie Gilmore, can we say any more. Let’s say “More, more, more” for Gilmore and may she reign in the dry or in her wet suit as she curves her way down the wave, then doubles back. Tyler Wright is right in there hard on her heels and doing the right thing as Tyler surges forward really heady and ready to topple the queen with a bit more sass. Tyler was runner-up.
