Spinkys’s Best Bet To Get Ya Froth On :

Strong Sth Easterly winds greeting the coast this morning. Onshore conditions making a mess of the Sth East swell in the 3-4 foot range. A wind warning is current for the Sunshine Coast with strong winds from the SE at 20-25 knots up to 30 knots during the morning. Pretty much all roads lead to Noosa to escape the winds, however expect the crowds as well. The corners of Alex and Mooloolaba for a smaller wave as the tide moves in, high tide at 9.30 am. The patrolled beaches looking terrible this morning with Mooloolaba and Noosa the pick of the beaches. The water temp at 25c. Enjoy your day in the waves. Ýo
