Best Surf Tides on Sunshine Coast

Hello,

I have never surfed before. But I am studying abroad at the University of Sunshine Coast in February, and I am looking forward to giving it a try.  I am scheduling my classes soon, and I was wondering if there are certain times during the day from February until July when the surf is the best.  Thanks

Ian

Hey Ian,
As for tides an incoming tide is the best. When you surf
on a low tide or an outgoing tide the beachbreaks tend
to closeout. There are so many variables to get good waves though (tides, wind, swellsize, wave direction, sandbanks etc...)
so its best to surf early (5am-8am) to get good glassy conditions.

Good luck .

try to get as many late classes at Uni as possible,
as the best surf on the sunhine coast is before 9am in the morning.
