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

    It's still tiny with what swell there is out the ESE. It's small only up to 1ft this morning. Conditions are really clean early with light SW winds early, forecast to go S, then SE later and low tide will be at 8.40am with high at 3.30pm. It's ripple riding only with a fraction more size on the Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS and barely rideable ones on the points. Take a high volume board and a good imagination.
