Hi there, First time on this site and are really excited I stumbled across it. I am hoping to be over on the Gold Coast in August - coming out on a 2 year student visa (a little old to be a student I feel (37) but hey, if it gets me over there I will do anything! My partner (42) is only allowed to work 20 hours a week - so he is well happy he is semi-retiring. We have a son of 12 who thinks he can just learn to surf and hit the waves all day! Really excited but of course anxious. Hope it lives up to our expectations.
