Atmosphere

The atmosphere here is cool, not too many hardcore fags. Just don't drop in on locals and you'll be sweet.

General

This spot is good when everywhere else is packed, sometimes the swell hits big, but if Snapper is massive and you're a beginner, go to Coolie.

- Gets a nice steep beach occasionaly, if you go to the right side of kirra point, that's where it breaks the best!

- Yeah just mainly part of the superbank and greenmount.

Hoax! - 'Coolangatta' doesn't really exist as a seperate spot anymore, it's just part of the Snapper super bank thanks to the sand bypass project.
