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 - Pretty Good

    Afternoon Update. A few storms about and a light NE sea breeze at the moment as the run of small E swell continues with it in the 2 up to 3ft range. The winds are forecast to be light SSE later with the tide was low at just before 2pm. Small fun ones on the points on the incoming tide this arvo with the winds changing with the squalls.
