The Surf Coast was pounded by a strong groundswell late last week and into the weekend.

A number of real estate agents and tradies indulged themselves on various days. Your author also had a couple of very fun surfs, in particular late on Thursday.

The two blocks both sold under the hammer with the standout result being the … Continue Reading »
