Surf Report Sunshine Coast

    Today's rating - Pretty Good

    The E swell is buried under an early high tide and is still hanging in there and is in the 2 up to 3ft range with a bump on it early. Surface conditions are clean early with light WSW winds that are forecast to go ESE later in the day and the tide is full early, dropping to a low at 11.22am. There are beachies about early on the open beaches where ever you can find a bank, then E facing Points later on the dropping tide and there will be some small ones at Noosa.
