Arguably the best wave on the Sunshine Coast, The Island offers superlative breaks both sides of the Old Woman Island. The "lefts" work well in northerly conditions combined with a southerly ground swell.
Not for the faint hearted in peak conditions, the Cheese Factory provides unbelievably sucky lefts and rights. Although protected by Point Cartwright from most swells, it can produce exciting waves when tide, wind and swell combine perfectly.
Double Island Point / Noosa Northshore
In a heavy easterly groundswell, Double Island point produces beautiful long waves. Ideal for longboards.
The Boiling Pot is a classic "down the line" break offering long rides with fast sections through to Johnson's. Perhaps the classic spot when the cyclone season offers epic swell.
Shellys / Caloundra
Just round the corner from Moffatt, Shellys offers a variety of breaks but once again very dependent on tide, wind and correct swell direction. Its location, away from the main thoroughfare, means it often gets overlooked.
The Reef / Caloundra
The Reef can offer some exciting waves when conditions are just right. A strong groundswell with minimal winds will produce epic surf.
The last spot to sample in the Caloundra area is Happy Valley or Happys as it is commonly known. This full wave is another favourite with the longboards with friendly but intense competition for the long lefts that extend into Pumicestone Passage.
