Currumbin Inlet

Currumbin Inlet

Queensland, Gold Coast

Kids and beginners wanting to practise catching long whitewater waves will find a good sandbar often forms beside the southern breakwall / rocks right in front of the creek entrance. Stick to this inside sandbar beside the rocks, as the sweep to the north and currents around the deeper creek entrance can be strong.

Wave Type
A popular and fast right hand wave best suited for experienced surfers on all but the smallest of wave days breaks out the back. For beginners and kids, smaller reform and whitewater waves roll over the flat inner sandbar towards the car park on the southern side of the creek entrance before fading away into deep water. Due to the strong tidal currents that can exist here as the water flows in and out of the creek, those with limited surf awareness and paddle strength are best to surf within the guided environment of a surf lesson at this spot.

If the surf is flat here, head to the more exposed Beaches to the north, including the Surfers Paradise Beaches. If the waves are too big here, check the inside sandbar at Greenmount Beach where smaller whitewater waves can be caught close to shore.

Good Wind Direction
Best on South to North West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small North to East to medium South swells.

Rip currents, tidal currents, rocks & marine life.

Have fun surfing Currumbin Inlet by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Car park is located on the southern side of the creek entrance.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Currumbin Beach, located just to the south is patrolled all year round - always
swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located in the car park at south at the surf club.

Closest Shops
Head to the cafes located behind Currumbin Beach to the south for some good
food and coffee.
