    Sunshine Coast Regional Morning Report (5:34am Saturday): Surfers get out amongst it early as the Northerly winds have kicked in already and depending on location to the wind expect wind affected bumpy NE windswell on offer across the open beaches, with slightly cleaner surf conditions up in those northern corners of Sunshine, Yaroomba and the Kawana Pocket.  Wave height is up into the chest high range with the occasional bigger set waves coupled with the mornings incoming tide. High Tide at M'dore is 7:49am. Kings  Beach is offering the better conditions for families wanting a swim, with next to flat surf on offer. 

    Rest of Day Outlook:  That's great news for the Kite Surfers as Northerly winds will strengthen through the morning tending more NE up 20 knots+ at times. 

    Wave quality deteriorating through the day. expect lumpy choppy waves. Keep to the northern corners, Low Tide 1:57pm
