Another long weekend has ended, the festival of the boot is over and the swell backed off to minimal, in Byron Bay today. It kind of caught everyone by surprise. There has been plenty of wind as the southerly was into its third day here and most were banking on a wee pulse of swell from the south today. Sadly it was to no avail, the day was glorious, and the little ones were frothing all over the place. But the waves were scarce at best. Every now and again a tiny little line from the south would scrape past the cape and just manage break. But when all is said and done, small clean and sunny is still a whole lot better flat cold and raining, In Byron Bay Today.
