  • Today's rating - Good

    Fading Easterly windswell crosses over with a small, underlying South groundswell to produce 1 to 2ft+ waves along QLD open beaches, grading smaller the points and inside the bays. There are great autumn conditions on offer under light WSW to SW winds at 5 to 10 knots and they'll stay in good shape as they tend SE to ESE around 10 knots in the arvo.
