Christmas Surf at the Gold Coast

Christmas Swell in SE QLD

 

Report and video by Craig Halstead

It’s been a big few days on the Gold Coast. Christmas Eve saw strong southeasterly winds tear into four foot plus surf on the Gold Coast points as the swell from ex-tropical cyclone Fina began to arrive in South East Queensland. The banks at Snapper are gone so Greenmount was the place to be. There were also a few waves at Kirra. By Christmas morning, the swell had built to six foot early then jumped to ten foot throughout the day. Kirra was windy, washing through and uncrowded early. Boxing Day served up a few early ones at Kirra and Greenmount. It was offshore clean early, as the swell climbed again. Kirra was washing through with the big tide but a great tow session went down at Burleigh, which was a clean six-to-eight foot with ten foot sets every now and then. There was a huge crowd on the point watching, as there was on all beaches.
