There are a number of great surfing spots around the Coolangatta coastline on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.
One of these is Kirra Point. Kirra Point was once a much bigger beach, and home to some truly legendary pipelines. Unfortunately, the groyne at Kirra was reduced when the government started shifting sand from the Tweed River to allow fishing boats to pass safely. This ruined Kirra’s reputation for a while, and it’s only just clawed itself back into the good graces of surfers again. (Ref)
This point allows spectators to view the surfers close up and it is a popular place for photographers.
