|Byron Bay Surf Festival 2014! |
We imagine that the Byron Bay Surf Festival
is like a surfer's version of Coachella, but even better because it's at the beach! The three-day festival held Oct. 24-26 was a coastal bum’s dream of sensorial happiness: live music concerts, surf movie screenings, expression sessions, yoga, SurfLit Lounge, artists and brands selling awesome stuff and way more events
to please the eyes, ears, body and creative mind than we can list.
Seeababes Makala Smith, Leana Rack and Chrystal Fitzgerald were up in it all last weekend and still smiling days after from the vibes. They guided us through some of their festival highlights!
All the surf-related events were held at Wategos Beach, a gorgeous world class point break. Board demos and expression sessions had the water packed all weekend long, and even the sand was a space for creativity. Sand drawings were done by a local artist that gets up at 4am to draw on the fresh and untouched beach.

There was plenty of socializing and happenings to check out between surf sessions, or just have a minute to take it all in.
