Australia’s so adequately named Sunshine Coast is a surfers delight. Surf quiet uncrowded waves along the entire coastline, an inviting prospect to even the most travelled surfer. A full range of Point, Headland, Reef and Beach breaks are almost evenly spread along its entire coastline. The locals are welcoming, willing to share their local breaks with visitors, observe the rules of surfing and be compromising in the line up to enjoy hassle free surfing. Surf the breaks best suited to your level of surfing and be mindful of the vehicle (board) you are riding, endeavouring not to endanger yourself or others.


Below is a list of breaks best suited to your experience level, always check the conditions on arrival with a lifeguard or local before entering the water. Sit and watch the waves for at least 30 minutes before entering the line up, watch for how surfers enter and exit the water, where the take off zone is, time between set waves, crowd and vibe, the tide and direction, rips and currents, locate any hazards or structures and be mindful of the type of wave. This will give you the best opportunity for a safe and enjoyable surf. There are four types of surf craft listed below, if your craft is not listed, choose the craft that would ride the waves in a similar fashion to your surf craft.


Surfing (short board).
Beginner to intermediate surfers can surf the beach breaks along the entire coast during the summer and winter. Spots worth a look are Sunshine, Coolum, Kawana and Maroochydore during small swells. On a strong southeast swell try the points of Noosa, Cartwright, Alexandra and Moffats. During summer a tropical cyclone can sit of the coast and creating large swells. Only experienced surfers should attempt the points of Noosa, Cartwright, Alexandra and Moffats. Intermediate surfers should try Mooloolaba Spit or Kings beach during these periods, but be careful of the shore dump. During small swells the experienced surfer with a sense for some adventure could try Alexandria Bay, Old Woman Island, Dicky Reef and Yaroomba for some challenging waves.


Surfing (long board).
The beach breaks can offer short steep rides, a challenge for the intermediate to experienced long board rider, for quality long board waves its best to head to the point breaks. Noosa National Park, the Bluff at Alexandra headland and Moffat headland are predominantly Malibu waves, with long smooth right hand rides all year round only needing the slightest of swells to be rideable. Be wary of the swell size, as a wave can often look inviting from the headland but twice as big on closer inspection. The points can handle very large swells, any waves over 2 meters should only be ridden by the experienced long board rider.


Body-boarding.
Beginner to intermediate body-boarders can surf the beach breaks along the entire coastline during the summer and winter. Spots worth a look are Sunshine, Coolum, Kawana and Maroochydore during small swells. On a strong southeast swell try Cartwright, Alexandra headland and Maroochydore. During summer a tropical cyclone can sit off the coast and creating large swells, only experienced body-boarders should attempt Mooloolaba’s dumping shore breaks. An intermediate body-boarder could enjoy Mooloolaba spit or Kings beach during the huge swells but be careful of the shore dump. During small swells the experienced surfer with a sense for some adventure could try Alexandria Bay, Old Woman Island, Dicky Reef and Yaroomba for some challenging waves.


Body-surfing.
Inexperienced body-surfers should surf the patrolled beaches of Mooloolaba, Noosa and Kings for soft smooth breakers. Mooloolaba spit is a very safe patrolled swimming beach with very little breakers most of the year. Intermediate to experienced Body-surfers will enjoy the patrolled beaches along the coast with Alexandra, Coolum and Sunshine beach offering a challenging ride. During Tropical Cyclones the experienced Body-surfer could try Mooloolaba, however you should be wary of the vicious shore dump.
