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 - Pretty Good

    SE swell 3ft @ 9 second. NW winds 14 knots. Nicely groomed sea surface with a good 3ft the odd bigger set looking like it will be a good morning for waves. High tide reefs will be the pick and right hand points early, before the winds increase from the W-SW and become strong for the day.
