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

    Great winter weather, but surf conditions are only very average. There's only a small swell in the 1 up to 2ft range from the NE on the more open beaches. The winds are fresh N on the S end of the coast and NW on the N end early, NNW winds are forecast later and high tide is at 9.30am with low at 3.15pm. There's not a lot to get excited about, just some small ones along the N end beaches early coming up to high tide on the highest volume board you've got before the winds pick up more from the NNW. Head on down to the park at Currumbin Alley and check out Wooden Board Day.
