    Update..There is a lot of water moving around, it's in the 6-8ft range from the SE with bigger sets on the more open beaches and the winds are strong from the S, forecast to go gale force S later and the tide was high at 9.43am, it's dropping to a low at 3.35pm. It's way too wild for the open beaches, it's the points that are the go again with very strong sweeps at Burleigh and Currumbin with Kirra by far the pick. For the experienced only.
