    Anyone been to Australia??

    Im heading to Australia next semester and I am staying on the Gold coast, right down the road from burleigh. Anyone have any experience there? Im trying to get a feel for wave consistency (as compared to NJ), crowd factor, spots besides the big name ones...


    On a side note, i need to sell some of these boards to get some money for the trip. if you see any you like feel free to message me and we will bang out a price.

    That can't be a serious question.

    If you can tolerate the crowds, beautiful women, copious amounts of alcohol, and hearing complete sentences in english, but taken to a level of incomprehension due to excessive use of nicknames and foreign slang, be prepared to never want to step foot back in the USA.

    I was there in June last year...it is crowded but very friendly and lots of waves> I went up to the sunshine coast and surfed overhead noosa for a week...the most beautiful spot and wave I have surfed> when small is just a longboard wave, but worth going

    enjoy mate, you'll like it

    jellys

    Just watch out for those microscopic jellyfish from the discovery channel that are 100 times more venomous than snakes. I heard they net off most of the areas but I'd definitely wimp out. I made a promise to myself a few years ago to never surf australia, but if i was living there I probably wouldnt be able to help myself. Have a good time

    Jellys suck. I'm sure they must serve some type of purpose but have yet to know what. I think sharks feed on them, right? oh well. Portugese manowars really suck too.
