“The thing about the Gold Coast is that the weather is always sunny and warm, with little wind. When you’ve got six-foot waves on the Gold Coast points, it’s magical. I love surfing D’bah or Snapper Rocks, on the northern side of Point Danger and the southern end of the Gold Coast. I try and go out around 8:30 in the morning, just as the kids are making their way to school. If there are waves, I’ll surf all day. But if there are crowds, I’ll head down the Tweed Coast and farther down into New South Wales to escape.”
