Emergency crews are searching for a 19-year-old man who disappeared under the water at the Killarney Glen Falls at Beechmont this morning.

Police say the teen was swimming upstream of the heart-shaped swimming-hole at around 11am when he ran into some difficulties and failed to resurface.

Meantime it's been a busy day for Gold Coast lifesavers, rescuing more than a hundred people at local beaches over the past two days.

A young boy has suspected spinal injuries after he was pulled from the surf at Broadbeach today.

The workload's not expected to ease any time soon, with big crowds and unstable surf conditions expected over the New Year's Eve long weekend.
