Gold Coast Surfing



Yesterday saw an epic day of surfing at the Pipe Master Pro in Hawaii! Mother nature turned on the waves and the boys put on a fantastic display of surfing.

Great news for the Gold Coast and Australia: Coolangatta local, Mick Fanning, won his third ASP World Championship Title! Congratulations Mick! Hawaiian surfer John John Florence won his second Vans Triple Crown, and eleven time world champion, Kelly Slater, put on an impressive show to seal his seventh Billabong Pipe Masters!

Kelly has also said that he will be back next year! The first event kicks off on the Gold Coast; usually at Snapper Rocks.

The surfing usually runs over ten days depending on ocean conditions. Both the Quicksilver Pro (mens event) and the Roxy Pro (womens event) are held during this time.

Dates haven’t been confirmed yet, but the event usually happens in late February to early March. Keep an eye on our Gold Coast blog and facebook page for further updates.

Once again, congrats to Gold Coaster Mick! And Kelly and John John too.

San Simeon Absolute Beachfront Apartments are located in Tugun. Right on the beach at Tugun and not too far away from the surf break at Snapper. It’s your perfect Gold Coast accommodation to surf or watch the surfing!
Location is everything...
