Most of the SSE swell is sliding past offshore, it's in the 3ft+ on the more open beaches and around 2ft in the S corners with fresh SW winds early. They're forecast to go strong SSE later in the day. The tide at 8.30am, dropping to a low at 2.35pm. The E facing points and the S protected stretches are the best in the 2-3ft range, the swell is a bit long and straight for the open beachies.
John Charlton spreads his time between the Gold & Sunshine Coasts. He’s been surfing this area for many a year and is totally in tune with all the different breaks and how the varying swell and wind patterns affect this wave plentiful region.
An E swell of up to 1 metre, another great Autumn beach day. Take care. All major Sunshine Coast beaches will be patrolled by lifeguards from 7.30am untill 4.30 pm. Take care and follow any warning signs and follow any directions given by Lifeguards. Remember for your safety always swim only between the RED &YELLOW flags. Ensure you swim when Lifeguards and Lifesavers are on duty and don't swim after hours.
NO FLAGS = NO SWIM.
