After checking out the sharks in Underwater World, I was hoping that I wouldn't see any of these baddies at our next stop: Surfers Paradise. To say that this place is commercialized is a major understatement... while trying to catch a wave or just relaxing on the beach, you'll find yourself flanked by an impressive skyline of luxury condos which stretches out as far as the eye can see -- pretty sucky since the buildings end up blocking out the sun in the later part of the day. This certainly isn't a place to find peace and solitude, but at least the surf's good and you'll find several surfing schools nearby where you can learn the basic moves and the lingo to go hang with the locals.



See those tall buildings? Suck!                My instructor showing us how it's done                Um, not what I had in mind when I signed up...             The most common activity -- going out to catch the waves   

Doh... wipeout                Not a happy camper                Hey that's better                Puneet stands.. for about 2 seconds

Hey, it's all GOOD
