Quiksilver Pro Surfing Competition

There is no doubt that Australia is one of the best surfing capitals in the world. That is why it is no longer surprising if surfing competitions are abundant here. One of the most awaited is the Quicksilver Pro Surfing Competition.

What the Competition Is About

It is one of ASP’s (Association of Surfing Professionals) locations. The winner here will compete in another country. The competition is held February 26 to March 10, and the winner competes in Hawaii.

It is a huge gathering of surfers, some seasoned, others first-timers. There will also be plenty of onlookers, those who do not have enough skills and guts to compete but would certainly like to become part of this huge world event. It is normally held in Surfers Paradise in Gold Coast.

What to Do

If you are an experienced surfer, you may want to give this contest a try. If you do not win, then at least you get to ride the famous waves of Australia, particularly Gold Coast. The region also has excellent spots to train your moves. These include Burleigh Heads, Kirra, and Snapper Rocks. If you wish to become an audience, you can set up tents and huge umbrellas in the patrolled beaches.

If there is no competition, you can rent or bring your favorite water gear such as snorkel, diving gear, and flippers. You can also rent a yacht or a catamaran, which can take you to different parts of Gold Coast.

To increase the anticipation and set up a vibrant mood in the atmosphere, there will be entertainment available such as performances of live bands. At night you can check out the restaurants and bistros, which serve various cuisines, including seafood. You can also proceed to the night markets, such as in Broadbeach, where you can find the best deals for food and arts and crafts.

Kids can have a grand time watching the surfing competition, as well as visiting the different theme parks nearby, such as WaterWorld and DreamWorld. They can also drop by Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Queen Elizabeth Park in Coolongatta.

Keep in mind that thousands of people will watch this event and all want Gold Coast accommodation close to the venue. To beat them, reserve the best room today. Check our listings of Gold Coast accommodation on your preferred dates. You can choose among holiday homes, resorts, and apartments.
