Raising Dough with a Mo – Shag Rock, Albion Place, DJ Eddy

Raising Dough with a Mo – Shag Rock, Albion Place, DJ Eddy

Byron Brewery | Saturday | 7pm | Free entry

The Morning of the Mo is a surf contest that celebrates a time when the shorts where tight, mos were thick, and the surfing was smooth. Competitors battle it out under the guise of an alter ego, in one part surf contest, one part dance off. The event is broken into two categories: there’s the surfing contest and then there’s the evening event, which is the dance-off. Winning the surf event is only part of the deal. To be the overall champion you must arrive in character at 7am and hold that character right through by surfing in costume, and then head to the Byron Bay Brewery for the after party and dance-off that evening. The event was created to align with Movember and raise awareness for men’s health – in prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. After the surf contest in Lennox Head, it’s off the Byron Brewery (7pm) for dancing and music with Brisbane’s Shag Rock, New Zealand indie group Albion Place, and of course resident Movember tune selector DJ Eddy getting the party mo-ving. There will also be a karma keg donated by the Byron Bay Brewery, with funds raised going to Movember.
