2019 Billy Would Go, What would Wick Do? Invitational
Chad Fairley, 30 and Mason Carter, 26 were due to return to Point Samson after a 10-day prawn fishing trip on the 13m trawler Returner but never arrived.
A transponder monitoring the boat stopped working about 1am on Saturday, July 11 2015. Neither of them were ever found....
In Memory of the boys, each year all of their friends and family come together to Celebrate their lives by Surfing one of the biggest swells of the season and having an amazing Day at the Beach loaded wiht beers good times and amazing people.
This is no regular surfing competition. You don't get scored for completing waves, or how hard you claim, you are only judged for charging the biggest and heaviest waves, and a description of all memorable acts is written down by a panel of beer toting judges and read to every one at the Trophy Ceremony. 2019 was an Amazing event. Cant wait to see every one charge again next year!
Huge Thanks To Kit Rayner, The Fairley and Carter Family's and also all the sponsors that made the whole day possible.
