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

    More of the same with only a small SE swell this morning in the 1 up to 2ft range on the more open beaches and only 1ft in the more sheltered breaks. Clean conditions early with light SW winds that are forecast to go ESE later and the tide is high early dropping to a low at 11.30am. Once again there is more size down on the Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS and they are the pick early with very small ones on the Points as the tide drops during the morning. Fun on a high volume board.
