The winds are S now and are forecast to go SSE later and the tide was high at 8.43am, with low at 2.39pm. Fun waves with D'bah and TOS having more size in the 4-5ft range and there are nice ones on all the points and beachies on the S end from Burleigh to Bilinga before the tide gets too low… Upgrade to Coastalwatch Plus today for your chance to win one of 2 Simon Anderson surfboards.
