Regional Surf Report


Surf Report Info

Region: Palm Beach to Manly - Fairy Bower

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.

    Morning Report:Waves 1-1.5ft ,Swell E @11 secs,Winds WNW-NE-SE 5-10 knots. Smooth as satin but small. Directions E but set when it comes struggling to crack 2ft. Still the odd bank around,ok with extra foam under foot and should liven a little with dropping tide. Try exposed beaches on fish, mal or similar if keen to surf with cleanest before winds tend light variable/onshore later.
