Located in Queensland, Australia, Kawana is a fun beach break that breaks over a sandy bottom. The waves here are suitable for all levels, breaking for up to 100 meters providing great sections for turns and hacks.
What are the best surf conditions for Kawana?
The waves here get good between waist high and overhead, too much more size and they will begin to closeout. A longboard will work when it is smaller here, but a shortboard is best when the swell arrives. The surf here is suited to all levels of surfers, depending on the swell of course. Kawana usually has a wave to surf (5/10), and there are so many sandbanks it is unlikely to be crowded (3/10). The best winds come from the West, the best swells come from the East, Northeast, or Southeast, and it works on all tides.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini with awetsuit top in the summer with water temperatures rising t a warm 25 degrees in January. In winter a springsuit is nice to have as water temps drop to about 19 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
