Good morning all, Visual Collective is coming to you from Mermaid Beach.
A slow and gloomy start to the day here on the Gold Coast as this wet weather continues. The plus side is it's unseasonably cool, which is nice for this time of the year. I headed down to Mermaid Beach this morning to capture a few images of my mate surfing his local stretch of sand on Hedges Ave. Hedges Ave is one of Australia's most expensive streets, starting at Mermaid and heading a few kilometers north to Broadbeach. This one-way street has some of the Gold Coast's largest architecturally designed beach front homes, with the price tag to match.
On the wave front, there's 2 foot of E swell and light E winds early, which will pick up throughout the day. The swell is predicted to increase during the day and stay in the 2-3ft range the rest of the week.
Have a great day all.
