Yamba Surf Club Survives Massive Wave


Last weekend a severe weather system brought havoc to Yamba with torrential rain, high winds and a cyclonic ocean swell. The Yamba Surf Club, one of Australia's oldest, was struck by an enormous freak wave that caused a great deal of damage, the caretaker is lucky to be alive. To read more about it click here.


Main Beach is in a sorry state with 3 feet of sand missing after the storms. There is lots of shingle on the beach which is a very rare. If we can have some calm weather and seas, the golden sand will return.

  7. Bohol, where I am, is one lucky province in the Visayas region. Typhoons very rarely pass through it unlike the nearby provinces which are constantly devastated by such calamity.
