The surf heights forecasted for Sunshine Coast

The Coastalwatch 'Surf Forecast' refers to breaking wave heights in the surf zone that are forecasted for a region. Coastalwatch provides 14 regional surf forecast daily across Australia.
Because each is regional forecast, consider there may be variations between the wave heights predicted and what you can expect at your local surf due to variables. For example; orientation to the coast, ocean floor bathymetry, local weather and many other local idiosyncrasies may effect the swell and weather patterns causing differing wave heights. Always use this forecast as a guide - for more detail, please read the Swell Analysis.

  • Short-Term Analysis (through Friday, 23 October)Wave heights are set to drop back another notch or two by Wednesday morning, as residual SE swell combines with traces of tiny, longer range east swell at inconsistent knee to waist-high levels. Read more
