Regional Surf Report


Surf Report Info

Region: North Entrance to Umina Beach

Reporters location:

Coastalwatch surf reporters are the saltiest locals around. Part fish, part shark, part human, they live for the waves and are usually more local than the locals. They’ll be up before dawn waiting for first light to reveal the days surf conditions and can sense a change of wind from a sparrows fart. Each reporter covers a region of coastline which includes many number of surf spots and beaches. Please consider there may be possible variations between this report and your local spot due to differences in orientation to the coast and any local idiosyncrasies that may also effect the swell and weather patterns.

    Today's rating - Good

    Swell S 2-3 ft Winds NW / SE into day . Easing swell front with only a few options along open stretches. Have 2-3 at those open beaches new fresh S swell from yesterday now fading into day . Winds are light NW making for clean tidy conditions early before shift to NNE. Another great looking day ahead for coast and worth getting in water for a few smaller ones.
