    Inviting start to the day with calm conditions throughout the morning. Light brief offshore breezes early before the east - northeast winds start up though only light 10-15 knots throughout the day. Surf size has dropped slightly with all the open beaches and exposed headlands holding most size and small / tiny waves on the points. Super fun shore breaks with some tide in along the Twin Waters, Marcoola and Mt Coolum areas. Need a surfboard hire, Malibu or SUP, you ring Coolum School school, we bring. Enjoy
