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

    Messy wind swell from the NE and some South swell with NNW winds and 1-2ft waves on the sets in the Bay. It's about the same size on the open beaches and messy. The winds are forecast to swing WNW later in the afternoon. Try the open beaches later today for some cleaner conditions. High tide is at 11.53am this morning and low is at 5.57pm. 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.
