Watch: The Snapper Scramble Reaches All-time Crowds

Gold Coaster's sure made the most out of 2024's first solid swell.

Reading Time: 1 minute

Barrels peeling for 100’s of metres, glassy offshore winds, and an opportunity for the ride of a lifetime on each wave.

Sounds like the ideal surf hey?

The only issue is that maybe around 500 people are just as hungry for a wave as you are.

Last Friday’s pump saw all-time crowds at the Superbank, which caused an absolute outcry in the comment section of our latest Instagram video of Snapper (below). Do you think the amount of people surfing the world-famous break has reached a tipping point? Maybe there might need to be some sort of crowd control in the near future? It will only get busier and more dangerous…

I feel like surfing at the Superbank is similar to the relationship you have with your local nightclub/ bar; you’ve overdone it, but the lure for an all-time night still sucks you back in…

Enjoy all the carnage from last Friday’s pump via the feature Youtube clip above, despite the insane crowds it’s still highly entertaining.
