    Easter meetup, Southern Gold Coast ?

    Just raising the flag to see if there's any interest for a dawn meet over Easter on the Southern Gold coast. Burleigh, Currumbin, Snapper, D'bah, Fingal ? Saturday, Sunday or Monday morning?
    Hands up please.
    Cheers David.

    Only just saw this, definitely interested David. I haven't picked up my camera for quite some time. Let me know where and what time and I will be there.

    Your research is correct David , The swell is increasing tomorrow as well before dropping during Sunday , So you'll have an increasing swell on an incoming tide , Take it from me , Watch out for big wave surges , Anyway , Before I saw this post I'd organised a meet up at Currumbin Alley for tomorrow morning at the Shelter shed in the carpark for 5.00am meet with ty13,Boofhead is coming , Plus Joel (JSP) and myself , We'll be there , Anybody else want to join in your all very welcome , Well be heading down to Snapper and Coolangatta after Currumbin

    Good one David, Mate I'm still checking out the Paths at Burleigh , I was taken on a walk around the bottom of the headland , After climbing through the closed gate, I'd never been on this track , I always wondered how they got down to the Nice big smooth and round mostley black rocks , Heaps of good Bernie sticks as well , It's the place where Russell got his shot of the Outboard motor on the rocks if you remember
