Clean and offshore

Headed down for a morning surf run to the Tweed River Area south of Coolangatta. Right at the border of NSW and Queensland. What a beautiful section of coastline and we managed to get some nice clean waves and offshore winds, the perfect combination.

Also got a visit from 5  time world champion surf girl Stephanie Gilmore…

OK.. well not quite a visit, but I shot a few  pics of her as she  walking down the beach watching the inviting surf before paddling out.

When she hit the water there was no doubt why she was a 5 time world champion. Seemed she caught twice as many waves as anyone else out there.

Enjoy.

P.S. Does anyone know how to spell Deebar, or can anyone confirm I got it right.. 🙂 ?

UPDATE: It’s Duranbah  🙂

  1. You have brought back memories from a year spent in Australia over 30 years ago. My husband and I enjoyed some wonderful times up and down this coast and enjoyed watching the surfers very much. I can hear and smell the surf from your wonderful images.
