Regional Surf Report
Surf Report Info
Region: Nth Stradbroke - Point Lookout to Cabarita Beach
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.

There are some nice ones on the points this morning with the swell a bit straight for the beachies and the swell has been pulsing on the incoming tide the last couple of days.
