The surf is up at the Gold Coast with an intense low pressure system hovering off shore. The large swells and high tides mean that the car park has been closed at the Currumbin Surf Club – but you can still get a drink at the bar.
The locals say the wild weather is reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s.

With the rising sea levels it has made a casual walk along the beach treacherous in places.
There are serious surfers braving the high seas. This morning we watched four being pulled out each with a jet ski.
Yesterday I had to climb Cabarita point – or risk being washed away – not.

Anyway, best wishes to everyone for a happy New Year.
