Cyclone Winston 2016 produced one of the most incredible run of waves in South East Qld in recent memory. The SuperBank was the main focus but plenty of other spots lit up over the two week period .
Many media outlets reported it generated twenty million dollars into the local economy . With the hype and forecasting web world going into overdrive everyone downed tools and headed for South East Queensland. Crowd numbers were relentless but if you could jag a bomb , dodge the punters in the way and not get dropped in on, you probably go one of the most perfect waves of your life !
Our apologies goes out if your custom surfboard deadline blew out ! But with waves like this in our backyard, can you really blame us for "tools down" !
