Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning, Dave Rastovich, Jay Morairity, Andy Irons, Heith Norrish, Anthony Pols, Munga Barry, Jay Thompson, Sunny Garcia, Dean Morrison, Rochelle Ballard and many more tear apart South Straddie in the session from heaven (actually a whole lot of sessions over the years) and Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate in fine form, demonstrating his utter contempt for a million dollar surf break and the entire world wide surfing community.
This clip shows exactly WHY this treasure, the best beachbreak in Australia needs to be SAVED NOW from destruction, saved from the grossly irresponsible proposal of a cruise ship terminal going ahead.
DON’T DELAY!!! The time is NOW to act, otherwise this place WILL be lost forever
It doesn’t matter if they put this thing at The Spit, or at Wavebreak or at Tugun or Kirra, it’s going to be an absolute irreversible disaster for Gold Coast surfing!
The world famous break at South Straddie (TOS) on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia is right now facing its biggest threat ever, with a real chance it could be destroyed forever. The now imminent construction of a proposed monster cruise ship terminal and its up-keep, will increase water turbidity (particles in the water) and the massive amount of constant dredging could destroy this place forever. This drastic land-grab by the private sector and local council will also bring with it the loss of wavebreak island, the loss of breeding habitat and potential fouling of a pristine aquatic area (home to over 450 marine species), heavily impact a multi million dollar diving industry and allow them to impose public access restrictions however they see fit, for the entire area – all in all it is a fast tracked scheme to claim land that belongs to all of us before we can get a chance to stop it. The mainstream media, local council and state government are trying hard to drop a thick blanket over any opposition to their plans in an attempt to appear that they have public support. This IS state controlled CROWN LAND that the council has no authority over. These changes would be irreversible and would render this amazing and unique area a marine wasteland, wiping out multiple multi-million dollar industries and our best free, open, public spaces.

ALL surfers need to unite now against these money driven forces that want to sell our free spaces, sell our crown land and in effect sell our surfbreak from right under our feet, to a Singaporean construction company – who will in turn replace it with massive churning ships, concrete and steel, facilities for the wealthy, massive hotels and pensioner-consuming casinos.
