Quiksilver Roxy Pro at Snapper Rocks

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.

The Penthouse Airbnb

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.

Cronulla’s Hidden Gem

Collecting seaglass might only be an American trend (??) because we were the only two people gasping at the vast amount of perfectly tumbled seaglass covering a secret beach’s coastline.

Bondi Beach Street Art

The esplanade along the famous Bondi Beach is a colorful stroll full of cheerful murals and unique pieces of art. If you’re staying in Sydney, it’s worth a day trip to Bondi solely to check out the street art.

The Streets of Surry Hills

The Sydney suburb full of trendy young people.

Surry Hills, as described by the Airbnb neighborhood guide: “Cool places and cooler people comprise one of Sydney’s coolest neighborhoods.” The streets are lined with cafes, each creatively competing to be more unique than the one next door. Boutiques full of knick knacks and perfectly disarrayed decor. The nightlife consists mostly of speakeasy-themed bars or converted warehouses.
