Tea Tree (Noosa) Spot Guide

Stormrider Guide

Tea Tree (Ti or T) is the locals favourite and a 20 minute walk into the Noosa National Park, but it doesn’t deter the crowds. Steeper and hollower than the other points, especially at low tide, when there is more chance of stepping on an urchin or landing on a rock just below the surface. Holds a bit more swell and winds from E-S, but once again, high tide is likely to bring you into conflict with the rocks, unless it is pumping. Granite Bay shows the most size, but relies on sand formations and rarely equals the other points for perfection, especially if there is more E in the wind.

Hot doggin' locals rule the beautiful bay so take a good look over the left shoulder before going. The walk/jog/run through the bush is often a frenzied affair, stoked by glimpses of perfect lines, rattling the point. Stubbing toes on land and on the wade out is common.
