The surf heights forecasted for Sunshine 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 Short-range NE windswell builds to a junky 2 to 3ft plus under fresh north to NE winds across exposed Queensland coasts, with scope for larger 3 to 4ft sets across northern NSW coasts. Read more
