    No beating the east Southeast winds this morning as it never stopped from yesterday. Onshore conditions leaving the open beaches and exposed headlands quite wind affected and not that inviting with winds forecasted to ease in afternoon and coming days. The easterly swell has eased a little overnight though still 4ft + solid waves across the open stretches and much smaller but cleaner on the points of Noosa. Noosa’s west beach is a good option for plenty of good waves with less surfers then on along the surfing reserve. Enjoy. Need a transfer, Airport, Music Events, Weddings, call Coolum Transfers on 0408807722 and enjoy your ride.
