Could you use a little R&R? Does the idea of "shoes optional" and napping in a tree sound like a good escape? How about good food, good shopping, and calm waves? If you answered yes to any of these questions, load up and head south!
What I liked most about the class is that there was no intimidation. Since the Gold Coast is home to some of the best surfers in the world, everyone in the water seems so good and experienced. In my mind it was only little kids that took surf lessons and by the time anyone was my age they already knew how to surf. That wasn't the case at all at Walkin' on Water!
The feeling of freedom, out on the water with the wind through your hair and the power in your own hands was amazing! We were soon racing as fast as we could, pushing this machine as hard as we could. We were carving up the water, going through imaginary chicanes, making our own waves - it was so much fun! More “oh wows”
The scenery was in one word, stunning. We flew over the fishermen at the Spit, the tourist lapping up the gorgeous beaches, the magnificent high-rises of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach and the glorious waterways snaking throughout the suburbs.
