Because most Australians live only a short distance from the coast, natural beach activities have become a way of life for many. Surfing is always a national sport with festivals and competitions held on the beach. Big races include Billabong Pro, Rip Curl Pro, Coca-Cola Margeret River Masters, and Coke Classic.

Surfboards were formerly made of wood. However, nowadays fiberglass with many different colors has been used to increase the speed and be easier to observe. The best places for surfing in Australia can be found in the Manly and Bondi beaches in New South Wales, Surfers Paradise off the southern coast of Queensland.
