Surfrider Foundation GCT extends its hearty congratulations to Save Our Spit, Save Our Broadwater, Gecko, and the many other groups and individuals who lent their support to stopping the Gold Coast cruise ship terminal proposal. By this action we have for now protected that iconic beachbreak The Other Side (TOS) at South Stradbroke Island, which by the way has been pumping lately!
In July 2013, Surfrider Foundation added TOS to its list of Australia’s (most) Endangered Waves. We hope that developers and their supporters have got the message that surfers cannot be taken for granted, and we will fight to protect our beaches. This is not the time to become complacent, however, as the ASF group behind the proposed Broadwater CST development has already said it is looking at alternative locations on the Gold Coast for their project. Be vigilant!
