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 lumpy bumpy 4ft waves on the sets with an SSE swell and a SSE wind at the open beaches this morning. Bigger sets at the South facing beaches and smaller at the Southern protected corners. The wind will strengthen later from the East and the swell should decrease through the day. Best early at the Southern protected corners. 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. Low tide is at 11.48am and high tide is 5.16pm.
