Lunchtime Update. It's still pumping with the ESE swell long and straight and there is a lot of push behind it. There is a lot of water moving around and it's in the 3-5ft range with bigger sets and the winds are still fresh from the SSW, forecast to go strong S later and the tide is dropping to a low at 3pm Once again the open beaches are not handling the swell, it's the points that are the go again with strong sweeps at Burleigh and Currumbin with from Snapper to Kirra the pick but the SSW winds are ribbing it up quite a lot and it is very crowded.
