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 - Excellent

    The swell is out of ESE in the 3-4ft range with bigger ones on the beaches that catch more of the swell and fresh S winds early. Strong SE winds are forecast later and the tide is low early coming in to a high at 11.30am. Nice ones on the points this morning that will improve on the incoming tide before the strong SE winds get in, try the Coolangatta points this afternoon.
