There were a number of different events held at the beach as well as the surf club to attract everyone - Testosterone Free Zone Surfing (strictly for females only), Tandem Surfing Tips and Demonstration by two couples (one was a 10 y.o. girl with her Dad), Vintage Classic Cars and Combi Vans display. There was also a sausage sizzle and a two stalls promoting coastal care.
We watched the ladies and young girls (youngest was 9 y.o) surfers and were impressed by their skills. It is not easy to surf, balance, walk the board etc but they did it well, despite getting dunk a few times. The next event really impressed all on the beach - tandem surfing. I have never seen this before but the two couples were awesome. One of the couple - Simon and Nicole - were more experienced. Simon was also very strong, he made it so easy to pick up Nicole, lift her high and Nicole was graceful in her moves.
