If you go to the North Side (Bribie Island) Cenerally crappy !
Caloundra has the first real happening surf. off North side

South Side Surfers Paradise would be sort of closest but then the Stradbroke Island or Moreton Island off Brisbane Moreton Bay but quite a fare on the ferry. ( Suppose you might pick up waves off the big ships what come into the bay and river.( I accuatally saw 10 ft waves off a ship the Fairstar in Moreton Bay.        Redcliffe does get some real small surf.   What you going to do in Bris.    Aloha   ~~~~~~~~

I've a Daughter who lives in Brisbane, Deception Bay an outskirts Brisbane suburb on the northside, I at Coffs Harbour at the moment and have a 21 yr son i've been geting into a few waves with and just gave his sister Melody a Pro Power 6ft board, Melody is just starting to surf and wants to move to Brisbane to do a visual arts course. I may also consider moving to Brisbane with my son Hughe who seems to want to get into film production with surfing. I was an Architectural Draughtsperson for 6 yrs and a Town Planning Draughtsperson / GIS Operator for 7 yrs with Lismore City Council. I may want to do some courses around Brisbane also.
Aloha

Brisbane has been so developed over the yrs.

If you want public transport Logan about 1/4 to 1/2 way to gold coast with Train Service to Brisbane.  

If you have your own transport,. I would recomend Tingalpa close to Stradbroke Island ferry as well as on way to Goldie.

Brisbane is a pretty good place to live as far as cities go. Only an hour away from the gold & sunny coasts & 2 islands
just offshore. Theres 2 many suburbs to choose from so just live close to your work & do the drive to the coast when you can.  Brissy people are pretty laid back compared to other
auz cities. Good Luck !
