Sunshine Beach Surf Report


Outlook Info


A solid round of South swell fills in at 2 to 3ft at the south swell magnets this morning and more like 1 to 2ft+ across the majority of open stretches. Conditions look excellent under early light WNW to WSW winds at 5 to 10 knots, - and it's worth making the most of it before they swing North to NNE 10 to 20 knots in the afternoon.

    Another great start to the day with a mixed bag of weather conditions from light offshore breezes to strong onshore winds forecasted throughout the day. Fun sized waves across the coast with a bit more size along the more exposed locations with smaller rides on offer on the coast headlands as the east-northeast swell direction continues. Grab your board and get out there with the lighter variable offshore winds and clear blue skies offering inviting conditions throughout the first half of the day. Onshore winds forecasted to be variable from southeast to northeast predicted from lunch with winds increasing up to 15-25 knots. Enjoy. Don’t get Bored, get on a board, learn to surf or improve your surfing with Coolum Surfing School. Free pick up shuttle available call 0438 731 503 to inquire and book.
