Byron Bay's A Sand-Bottom Skatepark With Garrett Parkes, Duncan McNicol And Pals
Summer jumps and boards with girth.
Sure beachies are less predictable, sometimes come with bonus wonk, or more often than not, crumple into a disappointing premature closeout, but bumping sand is a lot more pleasant than kissing stone. Throw in a board with ample foam and you can inconsequentially do whatever the hell you like; scoop a closeout, throw a rodeo (or maybe a kickflip?) out of the bowl and not worry about sustaining blunt force trauma on touchdown. Take a short summer holiday and join Afends cats Duncan McNicol, Garrett Parks, Josh Sleep and Luke Stickley around Australia's most easterly point as they get their kicks in waves of a more user-friendly nature in Hydro.
