About 30 minutes south of Surfers is Collangatta, a great surf beach and the location of the annual Quicksilver surf competition. All the big brand surf stores are here along with tons of photographers. The waves break one after another and provide great surf for beginners and the more advanced. We sit and watch the pros practise for a while, with all of their turns and jumps executed flawlessly they make surfing look so easy.
Next, we head out to try and catch a few waves ourselves- with most of the time spent paddling and attempting to catch waves than actually surfing. I think we’ll need a few more levels before we are ready to compete!
