Sunshine Beach Surf Report


Outlook Info


You'd be hard pressed to get a short-board going today. Whatever E swell there was is down to eeeny weeny levels today; probably lingering in the 1ft range along the exposed breaks while verging on flat elsewhere. Conditions are clean under early light W to SW, tending variable, before turning NE 5 to 15 knots later.

    Swell day and days ahead with the wave size set to slowly increase and offshore winds forecasted throughout the mornings. Lighter variable northerly winds are expected in the afternoon. Northern beaches again offering bit more push and height in the surf. As wave size increases the coast headlands will come another option. Grab a board and get out there. Enjoy
