Getting wet for International Surfing Day

Posted by: on June 20th, 2009

Hello Friends,

Just back from a little beach clean up to celebrate International Surfing Day. Surfrider Foundation northern beaches chapter couldn’t be put off by gale force wind and torrential rain. We combed the length of Fishermans around to Collaroy for rubbish and I’m happy to report that while we definitely picked up a few tens of kilos, the beach was in very good shape – particularly in light of the stormwater rushing out at three or four different spots.

Interestingly there were a fair number of bluebottles washed up along the high tide line. I guess we can expect a few more as the NE’r continues to hammer us.

Grabbed a few snaps of the happy crew…

Driving rain didn't drive off the hardy rubbish hunters from Surfrider northern beaches.
