Two people have needed hospital treatment after incidents in the surf overnight.
It started with a near drowning at Main Beach around 6pm on Thursday.
Paramedics raced to the scene off Seaworld Dr, before taking one patient to hospital in a stable condition.
Then about 12 hours later, at 6:15 on Friday morning, ambulance officers were called to a trauma incident at Palm Beach off Jefferson Lane.
A woman had suffered rib injuries in the water there, after getting hit by a surfboard.
She was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
