Surfer in Bangalow switch
PRO surfer Wade Goodall and wife Jane have found a buyer for their Bangalow home, although the wave of strong sales appears to be waning in the Byron Bay hinterland.
The property has fetched $950,000 having had an initial $1,075,000 guide ahead of its early August auction.
Goodall outlaid $300,000 on the 690sqm block in 2014 and then built a classic Queenslander.
The couple previously had a 1980s beach house at Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. The modern three-bedroom, two-bathroom home with timber floors and fresh white decor features a rear and front veranda. McGrath Ballina agents Braden and Andrea Walters sold the home for Wade, Jane and their two daughters, who aren’t moving that far. They’ve recently secured a larger block nearby where they are going to a build another new house.
Goodall (inset), who has been an ambassador with skateboarding and surfing clothing label Vans, began surfing after watching VHS videos that belonged to his father. He stars in the surf movie Passion Pop, which takes its name after an aerial move he originated.
