Snapper Rocks
Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia

Snapper Rocks is one of the best breaks along the east coast of Australia. It used to be an average wave until they started dredging in 1995 the sand out of the Tweed River and dumping it to the east of Snapper. With all this sand being dumped, it didn't take to long for it to build a super sand bank and become one of the longest waves in the world. There's plenty of places to stay, from back packer hostels to 5 star resorts. Surfers Paradise is just up the road if you want to get into the clubbing scene, there's also plenty of things to do around the Gold Coast if the surfs not working.

Feel free to send us any of your surf pics and we'll put them online, email us at, ophiah at gmail dot com.
