Surf season ends with big crowds
YAMBA Surf Life Saving Club captain Joe Dougherty said record crowds enjoyed the beaches on the Easter and Anzac Day long weekends.
"We had fantastic weather and I think crowds were bigger on Good Friday and Easter Sunday than they were here at Christmas time," Mr Dougherty said.
He said fairly large seas swept in during the Easter break, but conditions had calmed down by Easter Sunday and had remained the same since.
"We've had favourable conditions and not too many incidents, which is great," Mr Dougherty said.
The patrol season is now over for the year and will start up again in late September, when the team prepares for school holidays.
"Overall, a great season," Mr Dougherty said.
