Located in Queensland, Australia, Double Island Point is a fun point break that peels over a boulder and sand bottom. The waves here can be difficult to surf and are very long, breaking for up to 600 meters with many sections for turns and carves. Access limits crowds and makes 4WD necessary. Be aware that this spot can be very sharky. There are a couple campgrounds in the area, as well as some of the best scuba diving in Australia. It is also recommended to skip the 500-meter sharky paddle back and walk it up the point.
What are the best surf conditions for Double Island Point?
The point starts getting good between waist high and triple overhead. A longboard will work well on the smaller days, but a shortboard is best for the bigger ones. This wave is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here is not consistent (4/10) and is usually uncrowded (5/10). Offshore winds blow from the Southeast. Paired with a swell from the East, Northeast, or Southeast and low to medium tides and you’ll get some incredible waves.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini in the summer when water temperatures hover at 25 degrees in January. In winter a springsuit is best for the 19 degree water. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
