As those lucky members, signed up for the 2021 Surfing Doctors Gnaraloo Conference, start preparing for their adventure, we catch up with a few of the new crew who will be attending.
Set to take place from 23rd – 29th April, historically a good time for swell in the area, the Conference does look like it is going to be a cracker.
Hopefully, they will all be scoring some bombs in between Surfing Doctors work and presentations. It has been a while since there has been an official Surfing Doctors get-together. let’s hope this is the start of many more and further travel in the future.
