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

    4-5ft waves on the more open beaches from the SE this morning and lumpy and bumpy. There's a light SW wind which is trying to clean things up. The wind is expected to get a lot stronger from the SSE later this morning. The Southern protected corners are the best option all day or try the Bay for sheltered conditions. There have been lots of shark sightings at the Ballina Shire beaches so check it out before you go. High tide is at 8.33am and the low is at 2.53pm.
