Our guide for the afternoon was Damien, a surfer who started EcoTreasures around three years ago. A clear love of nature, the ocean and eco-tourism, he knows the ins and outs of coastal culture, everything from government laws to where to get the best waves on the northern beaches. He loves surfing so much he even paddles out on a foamy to guide us on the snorkeling tour and it doesn’t take much convincing from me to catch the wave (known as the “bower”) that creeps around the corner of Shelly Beach. Because the beach is protected by the reef, the area is perfect for snorkeling and diving, and on the days that it’s not, Damien tells me, with a huge grin, that he goes surfing. It's so inspiring to meet people who equate their job with "living the dream".
