Regional Surf Report


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 - Good

    Cleaner conditions this morning with 2- 3ft waves on the sets early with a ESE swell and light West winds that are forecast to strengthen later in the morning from the SE. Try the open beaches and Southern protected corners early for the best waves before the wind swings . There have been quite few large White Pointer shark sightings at the Ballina Shire beaches lately so check it out before you go. Low tide is at 12.07pm and high tide is at 6.22pm.
