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

    There's not much doing today, it's tiny this morning with only up to 1ft of a mix of NE and SE swell with light WSW winds early. Strong W winds are forecast later with low tide at 7am, high will be at just before noon . Just very small ones all along the coast on the incoming tide on the biggest board you can get. Ripple riding at the best.
