Spinkys’s Best Bet To Get Ya Froth On :

Fresh Sth Easterly winds at 15-20 knots  early across the coast beaches, with an increasing SE swell in the 2 foot range. Rather messy along the open beach breaks with the onshore conditions, with the cleaner waves on the points of Moffat, Pt.Cartwright and the Bluff and Corner at Alex. Worthwhile checking Coolum and the bays for some extra size. As the winds settles this afternoon, check the southern end of Maroochydore. The tide is incoming with high at 8.30am and low at 2.45pm. The patrolled beaches rather wind affected along the open stretches with Noosa and Mooloolaba looking the best out of the SE winds. The water temp at 25c. Enjoy your day in the waves. Ýo
