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 a excellent looking day and the run of small clean waves continues with the swell from the ESE in the 1 to 2ft range. The winds are very light SSW early, they're forecast to go N this afternoon and the tide is coming in to a high at 10.30am with low is at 4.30pm. Small fun ones about on the incoming tide this morning before the sea breeze comes in with the points the pick first up.

Gato Heroi Surfboards

Gato Heroi stands outside the mainstream surf scene with boards that are unique in design and function.

Morning of the Earth Surfboards

For some the modern short board will never make sense. To me there are elements of the past that are still viable today, when blended with all we have learnt in the past.

Psillakis Surfboards

I started surfing in 1980, and started shaping boards in 1989.

With 40 years of custom shaping and designing Murray Bourton has developed a failsafe custom online service that leaves nothing to chance.

Outer Island Surfboards

In an age when the soul of surfing is run by surfing corporations and the art of shaping has gone to the machines, at Outer Island we are holding on to the grass roots.
