Main Beach is the most popular beach with kite surfers and when the south-easterly breeze pipes up there are dozens of these colorful kites to be seen zooming across the waves. At times the riders are airborne for seconds and the whole spectacle is quite spectacular. The high-rise accommodation along the beachfront is an ideal vantage point from which to watch the action. The race track for the V8 supercar event which is held on the Gold Coast every October runs right through the residential streets of the main beach.
