"The system is moving back towards eastern Australia".

Surf lifesaving volunteers and lifeguards have had their hands full already this weekend as the risky swells hit hard.

The combination of a king tide and large swell conditions are creating a "perfect storm" effect, according to Acting Chief Lifeguard Chris Maynard.

Large waves are expected on the east coast.

Shark control equipment was pulled from Surfers Paradise and Main Beach last week due to the predicted strong winds and rough swell, with all other nets from Rainbow Beach on the Sunshine Coast right down to the New South Wales border coming out this week.

"You just won't see those stronger swells thanks to the protection from the reef".

"People out there get ready, make sure you've got radio with battery and a first aid kit and if you're not sure how to get ready, get onto council website there's a list for how you can get ready", he said.

"At this stage there is still some uncertainty across the weather model outputs regarding where Oma will move so there is no definitive answer on its exact path at this point, but what we can be certain about is regardless of where TC Oma tracks, New Zealand we will still see some rain this weekend.", Bowe explains.

"There is now a fairly mild one-metre swell off Yeppoon which stills packs a bit of power and we are seeing the highest tides of the year, which can still produce strong rips and currents".
