Ben Macartney's 5-DAY SURF FORECAST

The surf heights forecasted for Gold Coast

The Coastalwatch 'Surf Forecast' refers to breaking wave heights in the surf zone that are forecasted for a region. Coastalwatch provides 14 regional surf forecast daily across Australia.
Because each is regional forecast, consider there may be variations between the wave heights predicted and what you can expect at your local surf due to variables. For example; orientation to the coast, ocean floor bathymetry, local weather and many other local idiosyncrasies may effect the swell and weather patterns causing differing wave heights. Always use this forecast as a guide - for more detail, please read the Swell Analysis.

  • Recap The arrival of a small S swell holds better potential for some slow 2 to 3ft sets across northern NSW south-swell magnets on Saturday, while probably offering little more than 1ft+ waves north of the border. Read more
