The Boardrider’s Guide To The Gold Coast
Adventure holds no brilliance without potential disaster.
We embrace ambition. Dropping plans, jumping on the road and exploring the coastline in search of surf is a thrill. It’s what keeps our motor oiled and allows us to ignore the clock and tick. It’s the standard practice for our sanity; the diamond in the needle stack sought after too much coffee and late-onset hangovers. Any good journey requires a haphazard guide, but adventure holds no brilliance without potential disaster.
Here the Quik team present their boardrider’s guide to the Gold Coast, where the water’s warm and the cityscapes cast shadows on the earth’s 71 percent. Where beautiful women stride between the palm trees drfiting in the warm breeze, who will keep you up late enough to see the sunrise and wash off your sleep deprivation in quality surf. Allow Mikey Wright, Jeremy Flores, Wiggolly Dantas, Kanoa Igarashi, Connor O’Leary, Leo Fioravanti, Ezekiel Lau, Mikey Wright, Ramzi Boukhiam, Jesse Mendes, Michael Dunphy, Steph Gilmore, Kael Walsh, Cody Young, Joel Paxton, Luis Diaz and Mark Richards to be your aim-full ushers.
