Re: Bribie Island Board Riders

Visited Woorim beach, for the first time in about a decade, a few weeks ago. Reckon it's about one good storm away from disappearing. I know sand usually comes back but, looking towards a future with higher sea levels, I do wonder how severe the impact will be. Maybe boo knows?

Re: Cocunut Spray; The Niugini Experience
