Sprout Daily is rolling in a leisurely northern direction en route to the Noosa Festival of Surfing.   It's a celebration of most things surfing and attracts some of the biggest names in the sport and we're looking forward to getting amongst friends.  And; if the surf really fires, well, you've got a recipe for epic-ness that'll reverberate worldwide.  If you're not going to join in Queensland us follow the action here or take a look at the event website. There's plenty of coast between Manly and Noosa and we'll be trying to stick our heads in and taking a look a few of the more classic set-ups.  This morning we're at Crescent Head, one of the original stops off the Pacific Hwy.  There were some fun little peelers early but the Nor-East trades have made a mess of it now.  Robin Kegal and fellow Gato Herio's were all over it like cats in the alley. Onward. Northward.

Muzza Jacob and his Sampan go west.
