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 are from the WNW now and the storm is moving out to sea.The swell from the ENE in the 2ft range with bigger sets. The winds are forecast to go strong W change at around lunchtime and the tide is high at 11.30am, low is at 5.40pm. Try the N end beachies and the back beaches on the Tweed Coast now and let's hope the wind does swing to the W later.
