Surf Report Info

Region: South West Rocks to Forster - Tuncurry

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

    Conditions good on most beaches with a light westerly wind early. Swell is small and south. Main breaks around town are pretty flat. Open beaches and northern corners have a few small waves. High tide is around 8am and the waves should improve a little as the tide drops out. Southern corners are pretty flat and ideal for the micro grommet.
