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 a lot of action in the ocean this morning with only 1 up to 2ft occasionally of E swell with fresh S winds early. Strong SE winds, going S this afternoon are forecast and the tide is on the way in to a high at 10.40am. Hopefully it picks up a bit as the tide rises this morning, try D'bah and some very small ones on the points this morning, but it is tiny.
