Snapper Rocks, Rainbow Bay, Greenmount, Burleigh Heads, and Kirra all provide excellent surf and are well known with surfing enthusiasts offering plenty of point breaks.

For beginners, head to Currumbin Creek at the southern end of the Gold Coast or Surfers Paradise with in the heart of the Gold Coast.
