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

    The ENE swell is in the 2ft range this morning and the winds are fresh N on the S end of the coast and NW on the N end early, NW winds are forecast later and high tide is at 10.15am with low at 4pm. Once again there's not a lot to get excited about, just some small ones along the N end beaches early coming up to high tide on the highest volume board you've got.
