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 - Pretty Good

    This morning we have semi clean conditions with a little lump with 3-4ft of South swell on the sets with a light West wind on the open beaches. The swell is bigger at the South swell magnets and should decrease slightly throughout the day and the wind will swing SE later today so conditions will be best early. The South swell magnets are bigger and the best option early. There have been lots of big white pointer shark sightings at the Ballina Shire beaches so check it out before you go. Low tide is at 11.01am and high is at 5.55pm.
