What is: best way to get into the surf scene intheGoldCoast

« on: May 03 2007 20:05:00 »

I am moving to the Gold Coast to go to school at U of Griffith and surf. I have surfed in Hawaii before but I am deffinately a beginner.

I have always dreamed of becoming a descent surfer and realise it will take hard work to get there. I want to start surfing at least 3 or 4 times a week.

Just wondering what the best way to learn is and where the best places to go around the Gold Coast are. Anyone know any good beginner clubs? Or a good place to buy a used boared? I would totally do lessons or a camp but know that can get kind of pricy. Anyways any feedback would be appreciated.

Stay off the drugs, stay off the boose and just surf in any and all conditions. I used to to do it and at times it can feel like a job you hate.
The right board can be somewhat important but I recomend geting a good cheap one from the hock shops at Southport.
Even if you lay down on waves, just get into it.
I was wondering what nationality you are or your surname name origion.  I reckon just get a board YOU like and develop your own style.
Aloha
