Surfing Fraser

« on: October 17 2013 17:10:00 »

Looking for a definitive answer about surfing at Fraser Island between Indian head and waddy point. Staying at orchard Beach. have surfed Moreton island many times but even I am a little unsure when it comes to Fraser.

I lived down Eurong on Fraser Island a few years ago and surfed as much as i could, often went up that way trying to get a wave and fishing.

Sadly all of Fraser island is super fickle but u that end is the best chance of good waves, and obviously very sharky.

Indian head- Never surfed it i saw ok waves there, but was never really worth it, I think its the most sharky spot on the Island you can even see sharks and all other kinds of sea life from the headland.

That beach between possibly gets the best beaches on island, surfed it but nothing special.

Waddy pt, has the most potential on a big SE swell surfed it a few times fun but never epic, has so much potential but just never seems to line up always sections, although i did see it real good once only about 2-3 foot peeling with real good shape on the inside, but didnt have my board.

All in all, wouldn't bother if its only surfing your after, but if up that way worth throwing in the board as if you do get waves it will be uncrowded.

Don't allways have sharks around. But it's a good place to be on the lookout. I was a professional fisherman on the beaches and surfed Indian Head. Saw the bigest Great White off Indian Head once and not very happy one too.
