No, it doesn't suck at all, you just have to change your attitude.
If you are a serious Ocean person, not just surf obsessed tosser, you will enjoy some of the best snorkellin/diving in the world.
Did anyone mention to you that the climate is awesome.
Yeah, forget about surfing for a couple of years but have a great time anyway.

I lived in townsville for around a year due to work reasons, One coment_ Its a hole of a joint with no waves forget maggie or cyclones. I live on the sunny coast now its not the best but we get some fun waves here and there.

Byfield State Forest North of Rockhampton, Five Rocks does get surf, Sometimes
Yes you can !!!« Reply #6 on: June 08 2015 04:06:00 »
I been living up here for 3 years, there is surf but the conditions must be right. Head to the other side of Maggie island. The chopper the conditions are heading over there.The more likely you can get a descent wave. long boards are the best. I had a truly epic session last Sunday. my wave count was huge, the water temp is a amazing just keep a eye out for the usal things like sharks, croc, stingers...ect ect.
Just get out there.
