Spinkys’s Best Bet To Get Ya Froth On :

The Sth Easterly swell has backed off a little with waves in the solid 3-4 foot range, winds are out of the south early before strengthening from the Sth East at 20-25 knots. The points of Moffats, Pt Cartwright, The Bluff and Corner at Alex, with crowded waves on the Noosa Points still looking the best. The southern stretch of Maroochydore, Coolum and The Bays for the larger set waves. Get into it early as the tide moves in , high at 9am with low tide at 3.15 pm. The patrolled beaches of Mooloolaba and Noosa the best protected from the large surf with the water temp at 25c. Enjoy your day in the waves. Ýo
