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

    Update. Light onshore winds from the E and the swell is only 1ft now. Tiny ones on the Points if you're desperate. Early Report. Conditions are only average this morning with a small ESE swell that is uneven in the 1 up to 2ft range. The winds are light offshore early trying to clean conditions up, they're forecast to go ESE later and the high tide is early at 6.40am, dropping to a low at 12.20pm. Average quality ones all along the coast early on high tide with small ones on the Points as the tide drops during the morning.
