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

    Strong cross shore winds in the Bay this morning from the WSW with 1 up to 2ft of swell. The winds are forecast to stay from the WSW all day and be aware that multiple great White sightings in the Ballina Shire over the past weeks means there are quite a few big sharks around. Try the E facing points on the incoming tide and the open beaches as the tide rises during the morning. High tide is at 12.13pm this morning and low is just after 6pm.
