Surf Report Gold Coast

by John Charlton
  • 5/03/2015 5:28 AM | Report

    Today's rating - Poor

    It's not very inspiring this morning with fresh NNW winds up early and the ESE swell in the 1 up to 2ft range on the open beaches. Strong N winds are forecast, ahead of a S change this evening and the tide is coming in to a high at 8.10am with low at 2.24pm. It's wind affected all along the coast with the Tweed Coast back beaches and the Spit the only options and will be the pick of a very average lot as the N winds pick up more. Check out the Gold Coast premiere of CLUSTER - free outdoor screening at Kirra Surf this Thursday 7pm.
