Presented by our festival partners Corona Extra and La Casa Art Residency this event is following on from the success of the last years Corona Party Wave classics.
The Tandem Surfing exhibition and workshop, a traditional surfing specialty is not only amazing to watch but also tempting to try, combining the woman’s beautiful form, grace and athleticism with the man’s strength and surfing skills.
This year there will be more opportunities for tandem novices to learn and practice their skills in and out of the water with a specific tandem workshop hosted by Fred and Lilly Branger.
Adding to an unforgettable Wategos day, this year musical delights will be brought to you by some of the most talented local acoustic musicians.
