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.

    Update. The winds have gone around to the N now and the only options are the Spit and the back beaches on the Tweed Coast. Early Report. Once again there's not much doing with the swell still small out of the ESE this morning and in the 1 up to 2ft range and a it's a bit uneven. The winds are light from the WSW early , going ESE, then N later and the tide is low just before 8am with high at 1.45pm. There's more size at TOS, D'bah and on the Tweed Coast with smaller ones on the points early on the dropping tide. Go early before the winds go onshore.
