The Superbank: a joint venture between Man and Nature

The Superbank is a man-made surf break located in the Coolangatta, Gold Coast, Australia. It offers one of the longest wave rides in the world. On special days, the Superbank allows you to take off at Snapper Rocks and touch sand at Kirra, in a 1.97-kilometer (1.22 miles) surfing experience. Despite the crowded waters, the Superbank offers a complete adventure into the wave riding portfolio: fast barrels, mushy sections, aerial ramps and classic wave faces. There have been plans to change the geomorphology of the region, which include cruise ship terminals, sand injections, and casinos. But the Superbank is sensitive to subtle changes, and if the surf break shuts down, so will the tourism in Coolangatta.
