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 - Poor

    Update. Strong N winds are up now and it is blown out 1ft. Forget it. Early Report. Just very average conditions again this morning with a small ESE swell that is uneven and only in the 1 up to 2ft max range. The winds are light offshore early trying to clean conditions up, but they're forecast to go NE later and the tide is high at 7.20am, dropping to a low at 1pm. Just some average quality ones all along the coast early on the higher tide before the NE winds get up, then try the Spit and the back beaches on the Tweed Coast.
