They’ve had an excellent run of swell up here on the Gold Coast. That enormous mongrel swell didn’t get as big as we all thought, but the sheltered points have been providing joy to waveriders all over this north coast.
Everybody surfs here. Even when the sun is far from rising, the points are loaded with hungry frothers. A lot of patience is required to pick off set waves – some of the best surfers in the world are in the line-up. The points are like wave machines, the ultimate for perfecting your turns.
Goldie is a friendly place; it’s busy but not as hectic as Sydney. Everybody is lifestyle driven – making time for what’s important. Lately, it looks like surfing is very high on the priorities.
I’m heading into the Goldie Hinterland for something different. I hear it’s incredible.
