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.

    Today's rating - Pretty Good

    Update. Steady SSE winds and maybe a little added wind push on dropping tide. Morning Report: Waves 2ft,Swell ESE/SE @7.7 sec,Winds WSW-SW-SSE 5-17 knots. West winds now but was south early so a bit of wobble but looks ok. Direction appears more ESE than SE with less energy and waves now in the 2ft range. Open/ exposed beaches look fun but not super fun with waves getting lazy as tide flows in. Again go soon as winds due to edge S building as it does.Maybe try more protected beaches later on low.

    ...Check out the premiere of Holding On the movie at Hoyts Warringah Mall this Thursday night.
