Under the Sun Down Under Blog Update 1

I woke up yesterday at 5:30 and walked around the Sydney beach suburb where Tim Bonython (my buddy whose putting on the tour) lives. I ran past the ocean and a spot where I went bodysurfing on my handplane the day I arrived. It's a ledgy little reef wave that unloads in a couple feet of water. I walked through a little park and dog walk trail tucked away between the beach and busy streets. Along the way were amazing graffiti murals. They didn't look gang related, but inspired by urban graffiti in the US and Europe.
I got back, washed up and repacked my bags for the trip up north. We set off for Byron Bay in Tim's van pulling a small trailer loaded with projectors, lens,swag, and banners. Ten hours later we arrived in just south of Byron in Lennox Head. Lennox is just a few minutes south of Byron and home to some great waves.
After a surf I have an interview at the local Byron radio station at 8am, then a newpaper interview at 11:30 and the rest of the day is setting up tonight's show at Great Northern Hotel in downtown Byron. The Band of Frequencies are playing (they made the Byron half of the UTS original score) and Beau Young will be cruising in. I'm excited to kick things off in Byron and catch up with old friends.
