What a great day we were greeted with at Wategos Beach. First up at 6am we paddled out for a tribute to Donald Takayama and from there the numbers grew as people embraced the day and all the boards and activities taking place.
Toru from Japan had people making their own handplanes throughout the day
He had a great range of tools and planes for everyone to use
Lachlan Leckie from The Salty Merchants had a nice range of fins on display
Eden Saul from Dead Kooks helping himself to a nice 13" fin
Retro Classic Malibu board
Peter White of Classic Malibu in the middle and some great looking boards as always
The local surf club did a roaring trade
Ryan Lovelace and his girlfriend from Santa Barbara made the trip out for the day with a about 8 boards. One was too long for the airlines so he cut it in half and put it back together when he got here.
Every man and his dog was there.
Toru passing on the vibe
