Legends of music do their bit for Bay?s youth

by MARY MANN

A SURFBOARD signed by legendary music stars such as Normie Rowe is being auctioned to raise funds for the Byron Bay Youth Service.

East Coast Blues and Roots Festival performers, including Rodriguez, Ziggy Marley, Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins, The Waifs and Joss Stone, have signed the custom-made surfboard, made by classic Byron Bay shaper Brett Munro.

Paul Spooner, director at the Byron Bay Youth Service, said the Munro surfboard was an original, and with the performers' signatures should be a hotly sought after collector's item. As of yesterday, 15 bids had been placed, with the highest being $1025.

Mr Spooner said the money would go to services such as providing a cooked lunch for young people and towards the ongoing need for IT equipment.

Members of the public are urged to participate in the auction event by surfing the net and visiting the Byron Bay Youth Centre's new eBay store.

The auction closes about midday on Saturday.
