Surf Report Info

Region: Lennox Head Beach to Evans Head

Reporters location:

Coastalwatch surf reporters are the saltiest locals around. Part fish, part shark, part human, they live for the waves and are usually more local than the locals. They’ll be up before dawn waiting for first light to reveal the days surf conditions and can sense a change of wind from a sparrows fart. Each reporter covers a region of coastline which includes many number of surf spots and beaches. Please consider there may be possible variations between this report and your local spot due to differences in orientation to the coast and any local idiosyncrasies that may also effect the swell and weather patterns.

    Today's rating - Poor

    2ft ENE swell at the best and bumpy with a light NNW wind early. It's not looking good early with the wind coming from the North and strengthening later in the morning. Good news is a SSE change is due this afternoon. My advice is don't bother surfing today with lots of reasons to stay dry including multiple Great White sightings that have caused the Ballina Shire beaches to be closed. If you must then try the Northern corners early for the cleanest waves. High tide is at 10.24am this morning and the low is at 4.10pm this afternoon.
