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.

    Light WNW winds with a semi clean 2ft ESE swell on the sets at the open beaches this morning. The wind is forecast to strengthen from the NW later. 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. Low tide is at 7.29am and high is at 2.18pm.
