North Coast NSW Surf Report - Beginners & Kids

Tweed Coast, Byron Bay to Yamba

Sunday 15/3/15

Best Beginners & Kids Surf Spots* 

 

Tweed Coast:  Southern end of Kingscliff Beach for smaller waves, smoother in the morning.

Byron Bay to Ballina:  Byron Main & Clarkes Beaches (mid to high tide best) for smaller & smoother waves, avoiding where other surfers are riding waves.  

Evans Head to Yamba:  Sheltered Southern ends of Yamba beaches like Spookies Beach to the South of town for shelter from South winds later, smoother early.

Bigger & bumpy waves on open beaches later on South winds, best avoided by inexperienced surfers with the swell forecast to build throughout the day, so surf early for smaller & smoother waves.

 

Remember, catching green (unbroken) waves is often easier on mid to high tides (less nosedives) or if the waves are too big or challenging, surf whitewater waves close to shore, which is often best on mid to low tides in waist deep water.

Big waves & potentially dangerous surf conditions, so give surfing a miss if the surf is too challenging with very sheltered beaches a potential option like:

Tweed Coast:   Give surfing a miss due to big waves & dangerous surf conditions.

Byron Bay to Ballina:  Try Byron Main & Clarkes Beaches (mid to high tide best) for whitewater wave surfing close to shore, avoiding where other surfers are riding waves.  Expect strong currents & give surfing a miss if the surf is too big or challenging.

Evans Head to Yamba:  Give surfing a miss due to big waves & dangerous surf conditions.

 

Remember, catching green waves is often easier on mid to high tides (less nosedives) or if the waves are too big or challenging, surf whitewater waves close to shore, which is normally best on mid to low tides in waist deep water.
