Surf Report Info

Region: Brunswick Heads to Byron Bay - The Pass

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 - Average

    Bumpy waves with a light NW wind in the Bay with up to 2ft of ESE swell. The winds will strengthen from the NW later and increase through the day. The open beaches should be the cleanest option all day. There have been a few white pointer shark sightings at the Ballina Shire beaches lately so check it out before you go. Low tide is at 7.29am and high is at 2.18pm.
