It’s a sad day when you hear from the good folk at Byron Bay Surf Festival and they inform you broken-heartedly that they’ve had to pull the pin on the Byron Bay Surf Festival 2015.
The event has been hugely successful over the last four years and was recently awarded by Surfing Australia for its contribution to surf culture. Held in beautiful Byron Bay, the grassroots festival attracts people from near and far, who all come together to pay homage to the ocean through the art, music, workshops and other good stuff the event has showcased over the years.
Unfortunately, this year the tough decision was made to cancel the event due to a lack of funding and bureaucratic red tape that rendered the festival logistically and financially unviable this year.
The BBSF director and co-founders have postponed the event until 2016 and are now calling out to the wider ocean-minded community to ensure this event continues in future years. Please share this and reach out to anyone you know can see the benefit in keeping this unique surf culture festival alive and If you want to support or maybe know of possible major sponsors, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
