These days the artificially fed Snapper Rocks Lineup is the most popular ride on the Gold Coast, but there was a time when Burleigh hosted the big events and was the stage for pro surfing's front-line to claim bragging rights. The locals are probably delighted the Superbank now draws the biggest crowds, particularly on days like this when Burleigh barrels hard enough to rattle the boulders that line The Cove.
