  • Gold Coast Regional Morning Report: 5.30 am Sunday 24th January: The waves are so much smaller this morning, knee-high on the beach breaks and barely breaking on the Points. Dead calm conditions before the northerly wind blows in. High tide was at 5 am low tides at 11.30 am. Beach break options are the best chance.  Use a small wave board with lots of litreage, mal, or perfect for learning how on a SUP, make the most a declining SE swell.  On the poor to average side but worth getting wet to enjoy the warm water temp at 25c. Enjoy your Sunday! 

    Rest of the Day Outlook:  Surf forecast. Average. Potential for smaller leftover SSE swell, reinforced by slow-building easterly windswell in the arvo. Light winds early, tending easterly and freshening later.

    Weather Mostly sunny.

    Tides. HIGH 5:08 am 1.57 m. LOW 11:38 am 0.57 m HIGH 5:16 pm 1.24 m.
