Today, it’s hard not to visit a beach and see some Stand Up Paddle boarders (SUP’ers) enjoying their sport on the fringe of the surf riders. Or better still, seeing an early morning SUP’er on a quiet river or canal going through their daily core exercise. The urban myth is that SUP’ing is as old and traditional as surfing, originating in Hawaii generations ago. That’s only half true.
Surfing legends, old guys, gals, tandem surfers and even dogs have made Noosa beach their home this week for the Noosa Festival of Surfing. It’s referred to as “8 days of pure stoke”, “a party on the beach” and “a celebration of the spirit of surfing”, and these sum up pretty well why the Noosa Festival of Surfing holds such a special spot in the hearts of surfers.
It's autumn already and not that that's a bad thing. We are surrounded by absolutely bliss pretty much all year round here at beautiful Noosa. I do however find myself not quite ready to leave another summer behind me yet. So before I embrace all that autumn has to offer, I'd like to share some of the splendour and bliss of my Noosa summer.
