First Point Noosa

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.

Wave Type
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.
Good Wind Direction
Best on South East to South West winds.

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

- Rocks
- Rip currents that often flow west along the beach past the surf club.
- Marine life

Walk from town or park your car at any car space around the streets of Noosa or in the car park inside the national park that is located further up the point.

Lifeguard Patrolled
The main beach at Noosa is patrolled from September to May - 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.

At both Noosa Surf Life Saving Club or the National Park car park.

Closest Shops
Behind the beach at Noosa is home to an abundance of cafes, restaurants, surf shops, boutiques and bars.

Surfing on small wave days is best for beginners at First Point, as when the waves are bigger the skilled longboard community dominate the line up.

Even when the waves are tiny, grab a big board and practise your surfing skills without fear of getting smashed or in the way of other surfers.
