Surf Report Gold Coast

by John Charlton
  • 2/03/2015 5:28 AM | Report

    Today's rating - Poor

    It's small this morning with the ESE swell in the 1-2ft range on the more open beaches and smaller on the points at around 1ft. It's buried under an early high tide that peaks at 6.30am. The winds are light SW now, with strong S winds forecast later. The Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS are the pick early but small, with some tiny ones on the points later when the tide drops. It's day 3 of the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros. A call will be made later in the morning to see if there will be any action today.
