I’ve been Jeff Dawson for more than 60 years, it’s probably too late to do anything about that now. I’ve surfed most of my life away. I’m been blessed to have a beautiful partner, good friends, a caring family, good health and an appreciation of irony. I harbour a healthy respect for the rules of anarchy. I disrespect Woolworths. Being a part of The Byron Shire Echo is a source of much inspiration, pride, purpose, love, joy and creativity.
