Morning Update...It has fined up but is still looking a lot like Lake Pacific. The SSE swell is only flat to 1ft on the more open beaches. Light NW winds now, that are forecast to go SSW later in the day. The tide is dropping to a low at 12.20pm. It's ripple riding only with a board with lots of volume on the more open beaches later on the dropping tide, with from Peregian to A Bay the only hope.
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.
