Surfers is excellent!
If you love the beach - you'll love Surfers.
I've been there twice (I live in Sydney) and the first time i went was during "Schoolies Week" so there was all fresh-out-of-high-school kids there and all the shops were open late, and it was busy! (end-november til mid december)
The second time I went was a day trip (around easter time), and I dont think many shops were open til late.. and it wasnt as busy as it had been earlier.
There are lots of things to see and do on the Gold Coast, and the beaches are beautiful. Be sure to keep an eye out for the Meter Maids in gold bikinis!
I'll be going up again hopefully in January..
Hope you have a great time!
