Forecast Conditions
The water temperature is 23 degrees. The swell is looking quite small for Saturday across all of the gold coast. 1ft to 2ft in the morning with a slight increase to 2.5ft in the afternoon.The swell is slightly bigger the furthur south we go so there is a chance we'll head to Tweed Heads (thus the extra money for fuel).
