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

    It's dropped off and is pretty messy from last nights Northerly winds with 2ft waves on the sets at most beaches this morning. The swell is a mix of South swell and NE wind swell wind and the wind is from the NNE that is forecast to swing WNW later today. It looks like later this afternoon will be the best option for today for clean waves. There have been multiple Great White sightings over the past few weeks that have caused the Ballina Shire and Byron Bay beaches to be closed a lot so check it out before you go. The high tide is at 11.53am this morning and low is at 5.57pm this afternoon.

    ...... Check out the Father's Day Special on Coastalwatch. A gift to stoke every surfing dad.
