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

    Update. A light sea breeze from the NE is in now and there are waves on the beachies on the dropping tide that are slightly wind affected. Early Report. The swell is long period and straight from the S in the 1-3ft range, it's a bit bigger on the more open beaches with a wait between sets. Conditions are clean early with light W winds, they're forecast to go WNW, with a chance of a sea breeze later and the tide is low early at 6.45am with high at 1.10pm. There's more swell on the Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS and they are the pick early with small ones on the points early before the winds increase from the WNW. Northern end beachies later on the higher tide.
