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

    Light westerly wind is producing clean conditions on most beaches. Swell is south and small. Open beaches will be the pick during the morning, Main breaks around town are pretty small but the micro grommets will enjoy the conditions. Wind will swing N-NE early afternoon leaving the northern corners with the cleaner conditions.
