Surf Report Gold Coast

    Conditions have moderated heaps, but here is a lot of water moving around. The swell is in the 3-5ft range from the SE and clean with the winds light from the SW early, forecast to go S later. The tide is coming in to high at 10.27am, then dropping to a low at 4.13pm. It's too straight for the open beaches and it's the points that are the go again. There are strong sweeps at Burleigh and Currumbin still with from Snapper to Coolangatta the pick and it will be very busy.
