Yesterday I showed you the WW1 exhibit at the Port of Yamba's Historical Museum, the Story House.
Another exhibit that caught my eye was the Cal Liddle surfboard that Steve King was riding when he was attacked by a shark on Angourie's Back Beach late last year, he luckily survived, shaken and with a few puncture marks to his leg. To read the story as told in the local paper click here. It is generous of King to loan the board to the museum.
Shark attacks in the local area are quite rare but they do happen to mainly surfers or divers. On the entire North Coast, with a thousand beaches and tens of thousands surfing, there is one or two attacks per year.
