All beaches across the Gold Coast have been closed down today.
A huge four-metre swell was pounding the coastline on Monday, bad news for anyone looking to take a dip in the wild weather.
A dangerous surf warning was in place, while strong winds were also battering the city.
Speaking on Sunday, Mayor Tom Tate admitted people should stay inside.
"The waves are really rough and dangerous," said Cr Tate.
"If the beach is closed stay away ... safety first."
Conditions are expected to ease tomorrow night.
