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 - Pretty Good

    An early morning SW wind is producing clean conditions on the southern headlands. Swell is south but most of the wave action is going straight past the southern headlands. Open beaches have some big waves but it is a little messy with average sandbanks. Main breaks around town have a few fun waves but it is only small. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Winds: Southwesterly 15 to 25 knots.
Seas: 1.5 to 2.5 metres.
Swell: Southerly 2 to 2.5 metres.
Swell: Easterly around 1 metre. Weather: Partly cloudy. 50% chance of showers offshore, near zero chance elsewhere.
