Beaches closed due to very rough surf conditions

John Gass

TWEED surf conditions are rough with beaches in the area closed due to the terrible weather conditions.

Lifeguard superintendent of the Gold Coast City Council Chris Maynard says conditions were extremely dangerous.

"Beaches are closed today with the weather and swell, considering the forecast and gale force winds expected" Mr Maynard says.

As well as dangerous surf conditions, erosion at beaches will continue to occur.

Senior Meterologist at Weatherzone Brett Dutschke says there will be added erosion as the beaches still haven't fully recovered from ex-cyclone Oswald.

"It's also a rough week for surf conditions" Mr Dutschke says.

"We've got waves of 6ft and probably 10ft hitting the beaches."

"The surf should drop off a bit tomorrow as the low pressure system moves off the coast."

"It will die down a bit from Friday for the weekend."
