The Spit, Gold Coast

The Spit is one of the Gold Coast’s well-kept surfing secrets, providing surfers with good beach breaks regardless of swell direction. Instead, the conditions here tend to be more dependent on the strength and direction of the wind. For those who like their space, one big advantage is that there are plenty of access points for surfers to be able to find a beach break with very few other surfers in the water. The northern end of The Spit will also provide boardriders with good surfing opportunities off the southern seaway wall in the face of strong north-easterly winds.
