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

    A good looking morning and the run of very small, clean waves continues with the swell a mix from the S and the E in the 1 up to 2ft range on the sets. The winds are light SSW early, they're forecast to go S, then ESE later and high tide is just before am with low at 2.50pm. Small ones on the S end of the coast early on the incoming tide with the points the pick later in the morning when the S winds pick up and the tide starts to drop .
