    Regional Report for Sunshine Coast (5:30am Thursday): A combination of ENE and leftover Southerly swell has wave height along the open beaches in the 1-2ft+ size, with occasional bigger set waves on the south facing beaches. Surf conditions are looking relatively good at most locations under light WNW winds, and there are some fun waves to get into with the mornings incoming tide. The Northern beaches from Marcoola to Sunshine, Twin Waters and Maroochydore are worth a hit early. The Kawana stretch is again having mostly shorebreak waves as the tide is burying most of the outside banks. On the Southern end wave height general is around the 1-2ft+ size. High Tide is at 7:40am.

    Rest of Day Outlook: Make the most the morning surf conditions, under the lighter winds ahead of the Northerly winds kicking through the day. The swell will hang around at the same level with wave height on average in the 1-2ft size. Hit the northern sheltered corners in the afternoon. Low Tide at 1:41am
