World record was 512....
Today 682 surfers paddled out to protest and say "NO" to the
planned development by Reflections of the Killalea National Surf Reserve
Well done to everyone... new world record... thanks to Chris Homer
for organising the event... and Brad Farmer and the National Surfing Reserves
for your never wavering support of the surfing community... and coastal
The paddle out was followed by a mass rally at the top of the park which
saw several thousands turn out and unanimously reject Reflections plan
to build 15 "eco cabins", turn the tent sites into astro-turfed
caravan sites with power, water and sewerage.. a $300,000 kids playground....
and build a 200 seat function centre on the ridge line..
The meeting also called for the removal of the reserve from Reflections
management and return to a community trust...
