Opal is correct. coolum is a nice quite beach community. It is not one of the more popular surf spots here in the southeast corner of queensland. mostly beach breaks so there are plenty of peaks to be had. and not the micks and joels you find more of down the coast. If you are not pro, it is one of the many spots I recommend for a stay. cool people with an easy going attitude. nice cafe's on the beach front and live music at night. (if you are pro, go do battle at snapper or burleigh)

I've never been to Coolum but Google Earth it...I did that yesterday and the beach-breaks seem to go for miles if I'm not mistaken, so I can't imagine it's too hard to find an un-ridden wave out there

Read the previous comment and then try to make a connection surf772. If smoke starts coming off the top of your head take a break and try again later.

regular brushing and flossing is the best defense against cavities!

why are there parts like breaking out. it looks like as if there were some particular parts that make the wave break earlier in some areas
