“The Dolphins Would Come Right Through Where the SurfersWere”
The Margaret River Surf Pro was on when I was in town and it was a great bonus for us. The beach is set up like an amphitheater and sitting on the boardwalk watching the world’s best surfers was a real treat. There was a big crowd and a great atmosphere.
During the event and every day that I was down there we saw the local dolphins come through and put on a bit of a show. They would come right up to where the surfers were waiting and leap out of the waves, almost upstaging the surfers.
