I'm off to Oz for a six week trip. (Teachers!!!!) and have been doing some research into some of the breaks that I might visit on my travels.
Wannasurf.com had some great guides but nearly all mentioned Sharks and locals as potential hazzards!!!!
I surf Devon and Cornwall and so this was something of a shock and also and this is my first surfing trip abroad.... I am not taking boards apart from some body boards, as I will hire sticks if I need them.
Any general advice on travel, or specifics on how to avoid getting my nose flattened or becoming lunch on the Gold Coast will be greatfully recieved! I could end up anywhere between Sydney and Brisbane.
... It also says that locals are hazzardous in Newquay.... so all in perspective I guess!
