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

    There's a slight increase in the swell today with light NW winds with a semi clean 2-3ft SSE swell on the sets at the open beaches this morning. Bigger at the South swell magnets. The wind is forecast to strengthen from the North then NE later today. Early best at the open beaches before the wind gets stronger. There have been a few white pointer shark sightings at the Ballina Shire beaches so check it out before you go. High tide is at 7.38am and low is at 1.22pm.
