Coolangatta is the southernmost point of the Gold Coast, right on the border between Queensland and New South Wales. The area maintains it’s small beach town feeling despite the several high-rise complexes that line the coast. Cooly is home to a handful of scenic beaches and iconic surfbreaks – including Snapper Rocks, D-Bah, Greenmount and Kirra.
Shaun has a fancy for film photography. The photos below are from our first roll developed abroad featuring Bondi Beach and Coolangatta…
Today was the Finals Day for the Quiksilver Roxy Pro at Snapper Rocks, Gold Coast. Australians took out both the men’s and women’s events but two Californians came awfully close. The competition drew an audience of thousands, and we were lucky enough to enjoy the event from the competitors’ area.
Back in Coolangatta! Thankfully, we booked accommodation months ahead of time for these two weeks because the Gold Coast is jam packed for the WCT Quiksilver Roxy Pro surf contest. We totally lucked out and booked the most amazing Airbnb – 14th floor penthouse apartment with a gorgeous balcony with full ocean views.
