Burleigh Heads: The Crown Jewel

The Burleigh break is not just any wave; it’s a surfing sanctuary that offers something for every level of surfer.

Snapper Rocks: The Superbank Sensation

Just a short drive from Gemini Court, Snapper Rocks is renowned for hosting the Quiksilver Pro, attracting surfers from all corners of the globe. This world-famous break offers incredibly long rides, sometimes allowing surfers to ride waves all the way from Snapper Rocks to Coolangatta Beach. It’s a right-hand point break that works best with a solid swell and is suitable for experienced surfers looking to test their mettle against the Superbank’s powerful waves.

Kirra: The Classic Comeback

Kirra is another gem on the Gold Coast, known for its heavy barrels and fast waves. Although it had faced a decline in wave quality, recent efforts to replenish the beach have seen Kirra return to its former glory, offering some of the most challenging and rewarding surfing conditions in the area. When the conditions are right, Kirra’s waves become a spectacle of nature, perfect for those looking to experience the thrill of surfing at its purest.
