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.

    There is only a small ESE swell on offer this morning, it's in the 1 up to 2ft range on the more open beaches and 1ft in the more sheltered breaks. Conditions are clean with light WSW winds early, they're forecast to go S, then ESE later and low tide is at 10.30am with high at 5,25pm. There is touch more size down on the Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS and they are the pick early with very small ones on the Points as the tide drops during the morning. Smaller but fun on a high volume board.
