Surf Report Info

Region: Cronulla - Wanda to Cronulla

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

    Lunchtime update Winds SSE now, swells slowly easing back to 4-5ft plus. Messy, low tide - pretty ugly in all honesty. - Earlier report - The Sth swell increased steadily to a peak in the 6-8ft plus range yesterday afternoon. It is a similar size this morning on south facing stretches, perhaps just a fraction smaller. It is forecast to slowly ease today, the biggest problem is it is quite bumpy, uneven and unruly. The wind is SW/S and moderate and the tide super high early. There's not really many options other than The Point. The Alley and The Wall are kinda rideable, but there's a lot of water moving around and it looks to me like the banks are pretty ave again. Hopefully post swell the whole beach is not guttered again. Only time will tell i guess. I think Wanda is intact, but it is hard to tell - there does look to be some solid rips, so maybe there will be some rip bowls post swell?
