Places to surf in Brisbane

« on: April 22 2008 10:04:00 »

Going to be in Brisbane for a few days, w/ out much time or money to travel to the Gold Coast where can I score some surf Brisbane? I've looked at cylinders and Mains but the reviews are conflicting. Thanks for the help!

Are you allowed to take a board on the train.
How much would this venture cost.

Just as quick to head down the coast to the Goldy or even up to the Sunshine Coast.
Either one of these you can do one a day trip. Might even be worth while hiring a car for the day. That way you might be able to get down to the Tweed Coast and get some nicer, uncrowded waves.

Train to Gold coast takes about an hour form the centre of Brisbane (for $6 ish) and you can get the A1 bus from Robina to Burliegh Heads for about $3.00. That puts you right at Burleigh Point..sure beat flopping around in Brisbane for a day.
Services run all day so should be no troubles at all.

Too Easy

Seems really freaky Andrew. A Bus fare from Lismore to Byron is more expensive.

Is it easy to take a board on the train and bus or do you have to pay extra.

I may move back to Briso as a lot more work is available at yucksville than Lismore region.

Spoke to a friend that is currently surfing in Byron Bay at the moment and they say it is absolutely awesome surf there right now, with dolphins and turtles in the surroundings.

I checked it yesterday about 2 pm and it was soooo glassy. It didn't look like much swell though.
Only had a board at Heart and Soul and seem ed too busy.  I couldn't seem to handle so many tourists about either.    Another day another time , not so how do we know !~~~~~~   Wave on ~~~~ Wave on ~~~~~
