Plastic dreaming

The crew awoke a little later than usual after Harbs, Joey and Julius treated us to an evening of sublime music and the whole crew hit the dance floor. We headed south from Spain Bay in Port Davey past the Caroline Islands onto the wide beautiful Noyhener Beach.

The Patagonia boys took their chance to shoot some video and water photos under sunny skies with nice clean 3 foot right handers breaking right into a river channel on the beach. Dustin ended up surfing for around 6 hours as the swarm of rubbish cleaners systematically scoured the beach from end to end. The beach was relatively clean after we cleaned it for the first time in ten years last year but once again small plastics and pieces of rope were prominent . A total of 9425 items were removed, marginally down from the 9877 items collected last year

After a long day on the beach the rest of the surfers on the trip enjoyed the same quality waves for the last few hours of light set to a background of majestic sand dunes backed by towering quartzite peaks, while the rest fished, swam and soaked up the scenery. With some nasty weather forecast the crew headed further south for a safe sheltered anchorage.
