 Summer In Pittwater 2016 

Some pictures from the lead into New Year's Eve day and the first week of 2016 - morning swims, the tiny and feathered, deafening cicada choruses filling the air beneath sparkling gum trees, those out and about, surf clubs events and announcements and art exhibitions that show the lulls of laid back Summer days are matched by waves of activity in Pittwater!

Albums for all of these are loaded for everyone to help themselves to* for their own Family Albums in Pittwater Online News Photos site

Palm Beach Longboarders Club - January 2016 Sunday Comp. 

Palm Beach Longboarders Club Inc is a non-profit organisation based in Avalon on Sydney's Northern Beaches.

We hold our regular longboard surfing competition on the first Sunday of every month, from 6.30am, somewhere along Palm Beach.

Visitors (non-members) are welcome to compete on a casual basis, numbers permitting.

Competitors surf two heats and points are totaled for their two best waves of each heat. All members must judge a heat, miss a heat, then surf a heat. Facebook page - Website - Profile
