A wonder world under the waves
Wednesday 16 April, 2014
Whilst most eyes will be on the surface of Point Addis Marine National Park for this year’s Rip Curl Pro Surfing Classic, there are some equally spectacular sights underneath the waves of this legendary surfing destination.
In line with the culture of respect that surfing has for the ocean, local surfers made a significant contribution to ensure that the Bells Beach Surfing Recreation Reserve was included within the Marine National Park back in 2002.
“Protecting this area meant that its extraordinary environment and spectacular marine life, like the Weedy Seadragon, has thrived in a protected environment,” says local Parks Victoria Ranger Nick Alexeyeff.
“Surfing has a minimal impact on the plants and creatures of this ocean environment, so it’s a healthy way to connect with nature and follow in the footsteps of the pioneer surfers in respecting the sea.”
