Friends asked us to spend a few days with them in their rented holiday apartment at Rainbow Bay, which is a beach at the southern end of the Gold Coast near the border of NSW.
We had a great view from the 14th floor, looking north towards Surfer's Paradise.
It was cold and windy, as a winter's day returned to interrupt our Spring. The wind flattened the surf and the surfers are forever sitting and waiting for a good wave.
They were having fun so we went down......
...to get a closer look.
This area is called Snapper Rocks and the dare devil surfers jump off the rocks and paddle out to behind the rollers. These fellows are trying to pluck up the courage.
Some more come to give support. (C'mon jump I want a photo!)
They are taking a long time to decide..
..in the end they think better of it...maybe next time.
