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 - Poor

    Clean tiny swell from the SSE with West winds and 1ft waves on the sets in the Bay. It's bigger on the open beaches and clean. The winds are forecast to swing ESE later in the afternoon. Try the open beaches early today for some cleaner conditions and try the Bay later this afternoon. Low tide is at 7.09am this morning and high is at 2.01pm this afternoon. Be aware that multiple great White sightings in the Ballina Shire and Byron Shire over the past few days means there are quite a few big sharks around, check it out before you go.
