It's overcast with some showers and it is still flat. It's only in the 0-1ft range on the more open beaches that pick up more of the S swell. The winds are light WSW, with strong SSW winds forecast for later in the morning. The tide is high early at 7.10am, dropping to a low at 1pm. Forget it early. Strong winds and rising swell forecast for the weekend. Ripple riding on the dropping tide on the Tweed Coast, D'bah, the far N end beachies and TOS before the SSW winds get up.
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.

Surfing Mums meet here!
Surfing mums is a network of women who surf and are mums (of course), but what sets them apart is that they still want to surf as much as we did before they had kids. Its not about how well you surf, or if you are a long boarder, short boarder, bodyboarder, body surfer or learning to surf. It's about getting wet and having fun!
