If there's one man you can count on to comprehensively cover a swell event on the Gold Coast, it's Simon 'Swilly' Williams. The bloke was barely back on his feet after a recent stint in hospital, but that didn't stop him from clocking up the miles from one end of the Gold Coast to the other capturing all the moments that mattered.

Burleigh, Currumbin, Kirra, Spot X and Snapper, Swill nailed 'em all.

He was also kind enough to send us the fruits of his labours, so we could send it out to you to devour.
