A 42-year-old surfer has died after being hit by a boat on the southern end of Queensland's Gold Coast. The man was surfing at Currumbin Alley, one of the Coast's busiest surf spots, when he was hit by a boat crossing the notorious Currumbin Bar.

Police say the accident happened at about 8.45am. People on the boat were able to pull the man out of the water and he was taken to Gold Coast Hospital with serious injuries.

The man later died in hospital. The boat driver, who helped rescue the badly injured surfer, was in state of shock. Police have appealed for witnesses to the incident.
