Gold Coast or South during the summer?

« on: November 19 2006 00:11:00 »

G'day Mates!
I arrived in Australia 2 days ago, I will stay 1 year for travel around.
I'm now in Sydney and I wanna know Where the surf is the best now and in Summer, should I go Down to South coast ( black...) and in victoria during summer or should I go to super bank?
I know the best place but not the right moment...

hey mate.
you are better off staying down Sydney way until christmas then you should head up to the gold coast because the swell picks up after christmas. make sure you surf snapper rocks and d'bar.

mate stay in sydney till bout end of feb, my advice is dont go to the goldy unless u r only going for the night life the surf is good but its just crowds r really really shitty, i live down near wollongong and the south coast down to about batemans bay will provide good surf till end of feb like i said, after i would consider heading to WA i scored good surf last summer of there, but stay out of vic in summer, winter is best there...
