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 swell has picked up a bit and the winds are out of the NW now. There are some small fun ones along the N end beachies and D'bah on the incoming tide thsi arvo. ;Early Report. More of the same as the run of tiny winter waves continues. The SE swell is very small, still only up to 1ft on the sets this morning. Conditions are really clean early with light SW winds, forecast to go light SSW, then NNE late in the day and low tide will be at 9.45am with high at 4.40pm. Once again it's ripple riding only with a fraction more size on the Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS and barely rideable ones on the points on the dropping tide. Once again you'll need a high volume board and a very good imagination.
