First Point Noosa
Queensland, Sunshine Coast
First Point is a great spot for progressing surfers to practise catching green waves and turning along the wave face on tiny wave days when the crowds are low. The waves peel with good shape down this last section of Noosa's famous points, making for long easy rides to the beach.
Long righs roll down the sand covered rocky point that connects to Noosa's main beach. This is the most visible and accessible section of all the point breaks in Noosa, so it does get very crowded, especially on weekends and during school holidays.
Some very experienced longboarders frequent the points of Noosa and through their extensive knowledge of this spot they catch a lot of waves. To maintain harmony in the line up, make sure you can competently catch green waves and turn, and also display good surfing etiquette.
When First Point is crowded or the waves are fast and steep (which happens on lower tides), it will be easier to catch waves in the whitewater, or further north on Main Beach around the break walls.
