Surf Report Gold Coast

    Today's rating - Average

    Update. The swell is out of the SE in the 1 up to 3ft range on the open beaches. It's only around 1ft on the points with light S winds on the S end of the coast and ESE winds on the N end now. Strong SE winds are forecast with the chance of a NE sea breeze later in the arvo and the swell is predicted to go SSE later in the day. The Tweed Coast and D'bah have more size and are the pick on the higher tide before the strong SE winds get up. Small ones on the points later.
