Can i score good waves from u of queensland

« on: May 10 2006 01:05:00 »

I just got accepted into university of queensland for study abroad between july and nov. I heard queensland's a huge party school with a good amount of hot chicks and im stoked about that but now im also hearing the top surf spots are far as hell. i currently live a block away from some of the best reef break in california and i think i might go crazy if im not scoring good waves at least 4 days a week. Should I just back out of my queensland offer? My top priorities are surfing, partying, and getting smashed at the local pubs. What school in oz would best fulfill these interests? thanks

Uni of Qld is excellent academically....but about an hour's drive to the coast. That said, some of the best point breaks in Aus are on the Gold Coast but as you probably know, are very crowded.
