The gist of your story on surfing Hall of Fame Pauline Menczer, (Echo, March 14) has been told many times over the years under the generic heading of ‘local girl done good’.

What made this story an absolute standout of inspirational reading was the sheer hard graft that for was Menczer her life in the process of achieving her goals and achievements in surfing.

I wouldn’t know Menczer if I bumped into her in the surf but these stories are able to instil a sense of gratitude and wonderment that the Byron community harbours these gems of achievement.
