Gold Coast Treasure: Bede Durbidge

Currumbin pro surfer Bede Durbidge is one of the best surfers in the world.

After shattering his pelvis in a massive wipe-out at Hawaii’s Pipeline late last year, the 33-year-old has been forced to take a step back from his surfing career.

Instead, Durbidge has been focusing on his family life, and his other interests – the Balter Brewing Co. (which he is about to launch with mates Joel Parkinson, Mick Fanning and Josh Kerr in  Currumbin) and the Fox Grom Shootout (a surfing competition he developed on North Stradbroke Island).

Although unable to hit the surf at next week’s Quiksilver Pro, Durbidge told myGC he will still be enjoying one of his favourite breaks from the commentator box.
