Located in The Gold Coast at the eastern end of Coolangatta Beach, Greenmount is a rippable pointbreak breaking over a sand bottom.
The wave here is not quite as sucky as further up the point and can be a more user friendly than some of its neighbours but still has its day when the sand lines up and the swell pumps – you’ll score perfect drainers or long rippable waves for up to 200m.
