Surfers and Wind Surfers definitely have their place here on Norfolk Island. On a summers day, and with a good breeze on the bay, you can generally catch a glimpse of a wind surfer heading through the passage between Emily and Slaughter Bays towards Nepean and Phillip Islands.

The local surfing lads can be seen on any given day waiting patiently for the right surf whether it be a fine day or otherwise. Such is the life of an Adventure Sports enthusiast.
