People from all over the country and the globe gathered in Byron Bay over the weekend for the 10th outing of the Byron Bay Surf Festival.
The event brought surfers, musicians, artists, filmmakers, activists and water-people together to celebrate surfing and all that it culturally encompasses.
In the last surfing event for the 2020 Byron Bay Surf Festival on Sunday afternoon, around 30 surfers lined up for the annual ‘party wave’ ride.
The party wave turned into the party set, then the four (and a half) surfmen of the Wategos before the winner claimed, and ate, the mango of victory.
‘It was a really successful weekend, blessed with perfect weather and surf after two weeks of 500mm of rain,’ event organiser James McMillan, told The Echo.
‘Everyone was so stoked to be outdoors surfing, seeking and celebrating all things surf culture.’
‘The local community, as well as Hawaiian, Japanese, French and Brazilian surfers and artists joined in on the BBSF ten-year anniversary festival at Wategos beach and Byron Bay Brewery. Couldn’t have asked for better. Lots of smiling faces and stoked souls!’
