Surfers will be surfers. A local surf shop sent a bunch of boards to the conference centre first thing this morning to give those who opted not to pay excessive amounts of money to airline companies the opportunity to rent a board. Even though it's just for a few days, an awful lot of careful thought and discussion went into each board chosen.
There's been a steadily increasing swell on the beach directly in front with some beautiful waves in the morning before the wind comes up a little later. And while the tide dictates a lot in this area the early bird will most likely still get the worm this week!
