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 is bigger but a bit messy out of the ESE in the 2 to 3ft range this morning, but unfortunately the winds are out of the SE early. Stronger SE winds are forecast later. The open beaches are messy and wind affected early, so check the Points and S corners for the cleanest options, but is hardly inspiring. There have been quite few large White Pointer shark sightings and incidents at the Ballina Shire beaches lately so check it out before you go. High tide is at 6.40am and low tide is at 1.10pm.
