Mooloolaba is a popular tourist destination, located at 97 km/60 mi north of Brisbane, the capital state. Mooloolaba provides a port with its marinas, beautiful ocean beaches, a vast number of quality restaurants, stylish cafe and great bars.

Pin Cushion is an exposed beach break, close to Maroochydore surf site. Pin Cushion offers very reliable surf conditions, with both left and right hand waves. Here you are able to explore the waves with swell sizes that can start from less than 1 m/3 ft and hold up to 2.5 m/8 ft. The best wind direction is from the west and the ideal swell direction is from the east, southeast. The average water temperature is around 28°C/82.4°F in summer and around 20°C/68°F in winter.

In addition, the ideal tide position is mid and high tide. In summer, the wind blows offshore at 7%, in autumn the wind blows at 14%, in winter at 25% and in spring at 11%. The spot is suitable for all surfers. Furthermore, the tide can not affect the quality of the surf. Last but not least, it is a great place for surfers who hate beach crowds, as it is usually uncrowded. Note: be careful of sharks, jellyfish, rips and rocks.
