The Goldcoast has hosted a world tour event, either qualifying or full blown championship status, for almost two decades. In the early days it was all about Kirra, the epic hollow right-handers made it one of the best surf spots on Earth. Then after extensive dredging of the nearby Tweed River, it became all about the Super Bank, stretching from Snapper Rocks to Rainbow Bay.
In that time there have been some epic heats, it’s a place where world title contenders show up and throw down their credentials for the year. Even though it’s the very first event it’s seen as a benchmark for what’s to come. So with that in mind, and to get you psyched for more here are the top heats of all time.
