We are sometimes asked, “Does Agnes Water have surf?” It sure does! Families, groups and individuals come here to surf, paddle-board, kite-surf, etc all the time.
The below information is from the Surf Life Saving Queensland website:
“Agnes Water Beach is famous among surfers as being the most northerly beach on the east coast to regularly receive Tasman Sea swell which, when it arrives, provides some excellent surf. The main beach is 5.5km long, running from Round Hill in the north down to Agnes Water. The beach is relatively straight and faces east-north-east. It is famous among surfers as being the most northerly beach on the east coast to regularly receive Tasman Sea swell which, when it arrives, provides some excellent surf. Most of the beach is backed by a low dune and natural vegetation.
The beach usually receives waves averaging about 1m, which combine with the medium sand to build a moderately steep high-tide beach, with a continuous bar exposed at low tide. During and following higher swell, up to 30 rip channels are cut across the lower section of the bar and an outer bar forms along the central and northern sections of the beach. The rip channels will persist for some weeks during lower wave conditions.”
Agnes Water has a very active Surf Life Saving Club.
Agnes Water also holds The Reef 2 Beach Longboard Classic each year. This event attracts world-class longboard surfers.
“The pristine beaches and rivers around the town of 1770 and Agnes Waters are among the best kite boarding locations on the planet. The shallow water and consistent wind is ideal for beginners and very safe for your first lessons.” [This information came from here.]
