    Gold Coast Regional Morning Report: 6.25am Wednesday, 20th January: The leading edge of a long-period southerly groundswell isn't making a whole lot of difference to surf-heights across the Goldy this morning; maintaining textured, knee to waist high sets along the open beaches, and still virtually flat along the points. Freshening SSE winds are already adding some texture to conditions, and while the south-swell magnet will be seeing occasional larger sets, it's nothing to write home about. 

    Rest of the Day Outlook:  A slow building trend in southerly groundswell should see set waves gradually nudging up throughout the day, so it's probably worth keeping an eye on the regional magnets as the swell picks up this arvo. Fresh onshore SSE winds will limit options to the semi-sheltered stretches all day. The tide is low at 6.20am and fills in to a 12.43pm high. Have a great day.
