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

    Very similar to yesterday morning with a SE swell that a bit uneven in the 3ft range on the Tweed Coast, 2ft on the Gold Coast. SSW winds early that are forecast to go around to the SE later, but not as strong as the last couple of days and the tide is coming in to a high at 9.20am with low at 3.40pm. Once again D'bah is the pick early as it has that extra bit of size and it is a bit uneven with some small ones on the S end beachies and the points also early before the tide gets too high. Later in the morning when the tide drops the Collangatta points will be the pick for a few small ones.
