Wayne lives in a perfect zone of joy at Agnes
WAYNE Mellick fell in love with Agnes Water the first time he visited from his original home Emu Park.
He knew one day he would set up his life in the small beach town and never leave.
Now, over 25 years into his life at Agnes Water, Mr Mellick wakes up every day and thanks himself for making that decision.
He calls it paradise.
A surfer, Mr Mellick is particularly taken by the opportunities he gets daily to take his board to the water, and simply enjoy the surroundings.
"There is no better beach than this one," he said. "I am told that every day, by tourists from all over the world. I go surfing as much as I can."
A small break, Agnes Water is never going to host a world championship tour event, but Mr Mellick is adamant it has more to offer than meets the eye.
He said it is an intricate wave which is good for beginners, but also offers a challenge for advanced surfers.
The thing he likes most though is just relaxing, catching a few waves and winding down as the day disappears.
"My preferable time to surf is dusk," he said.
"Watching the sun set over the mountains and then going home fresh. Summer or winter, it is pleasant."
Mr Mellick said even if he could live another dream of following the world tour around for a year, he would still call Agnes Water his home - and tell the world about it.
Other than that, he is not going anywhere.
"I will never move, I have no desire to be anywhere else."
