In June I'm traveling to OZ with my Working Holiday Visa. My plan is to surf as much as possible.

I need help choosing between MANLY and SURFERS PARADISE.
Maybe 6 months at each?
Which place will have the best surf, most women, best jobs?

I reckon you'll want to spend maybe 4 months at each...very different places. Surfers is more glitzy and bronzed, Manly is a bit more chilled. Then, if your savings permit, spend a couple of months trekking around. There's amazing surf on the Victorian coast, in spots like Venus Bay, Portsea, Phillip Island and the surf coast (Torquay etc). Plus, there's great surf in Tassie and WA (check out this site for pics of the biggest Aussie wave ridden

Good luck on your safari!

Gold Coast is great for surf but no... not surfers paradise. The name can be deceiving. The best beaches for surf on the Gold Coast are Snapper rocks, Burleigh heads and kirra beach, all world renound surf beaches with great breaks
