Surf Report Info

Region: Nth Stradbroke - Point Lookout to Cabarita Beach

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

    A grey morning and the run of very small, clean early waves continues with the swell from the ESE in the 1 up to 2ft range on the sets and starting to get buried under an early high tide. Conditions are clean with the winds light WSW first up, they're forecast to go S later and high tide is 8.20am with low at 2.10pm. Some very small ones all along the coast early on the higher tide with the points the pick later in the day when the S winds get up.
