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 - Average

    The swell has picked up a little overnight and this morning we have clean conditions this morning with 2-3ft of SSE swell on the sets with a WNW wind on the open beaches. The swell is bigger at the South swell magnets and should increase 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 and two encounters yesterday so check it out before you go. Low tide is at 10.01am and high is at 4.56pm.
