On far shores, weary mariners hear voices

Surf and ocean enthusiasts rejoice…only 11 more days until the 4th annual Byron Bay Surf Festival and judging from the program, the event should be nothing short of Byron Bay magic. A 3-day celebration that draws in ocean-loving folk from near and far, the BBSF showcases film, photography, art, history, markets, literature, design, craft, workshops (and a heap more goodness) that all pay homage to the creative culture within surfing.
With a program that is bursting with epic festivities, including the Australian premieres of surf films ‘Expencive Porno’ and the highly anticipated Beyond The Surface, the BBSF is the perfect way to experience surf culture in true Byron fashion.
Musicians, shapers, surfers, artists, locals and tourists will unite to make this year’s festival as stellar as the last and this year’s musical offerings include Bonjah, Ash Grunwald and iconic surfer/muso Donovan Frankenreiter, just to name a few!
If you’re in Byron from the 24-26th of October, do yourself a favour and get amongst it all!
