    #dawgsdownunder Blog: Surfin' AUS We awoke in Surfer’s Paradise excited to see if the town would live up to its name. Like always, the first indicator of how our day would go was breakfast. While it was no Travelodge Sydney, Vibe got the job done. After breakfast, we drove to the beach, where very stylish blue rash guards were distributed. Katie and Lily ended up in children’s larges and probably looked the best of all of us. We took our boards down to the beach, where we divided into two groups: those who had surfed before and those who hadn’t. In the latter group, we looked to our instructor – face coated in zinc and all – for instructions on how to get on the board and stand up.
