On Australia's east coast, the Gold Coast has a growing surf culture that is an identifier for the sea-side towns and growing business centres. Throughout the year, Surfing has events such as Pipeline where surfers put their lives on the line for the biggest, scariest and most-thrilling waves of their life usually in places such as Hawaii and South Africa. You can see stars such as Kelly Slater, Mick Fanning, Thomas Woods, Pauline Ado and many more. Whereas the Gold Coast is now becoming a host to the surfie culture. Our laidback attitude, beautiful beaches, stunning coastlines and plenty of room are what is welcoming surfers from all over the world to surf what Australia has to offer.
