Surf Report Info

Region: Shoal Bay to Swansea

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

    S swell 4ft+ @ 11 seconds. WNW winds 8 knots. Clean sea surface with an unorganized S swell which looks to be on the rise. Winds are good at the moment and you will get a wave at the right hand points and high tide reefs as that tide starts to fill in. Winds are forecast to become strong from the SW and swing to the S later in the afternoon.
