Sometimes in autumn, we get a late season cyclone that lines up the swells like corduroy from First Point to Granite Bay and beyond. Car parks are jammed. Drop ins are notorious and local building sites shut down while tradespeople get some work and life balance. Cyclone Freda was kind and hovered far enough away not to do any damage but still pulsed out magnificent rides for what seemed a few weeks.
Sometimes Autumn just brings little crystalline peelers for big logs. Down near the rivermouth or over at Sunshine. Either way this years Noosa Festival going to be a wonderful gathering of diverse equipment, accents, ages and experiences. Bring it on!
