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 - Excellent

    Update , Wow what a day, Swells still solid with 8ft sets S facing and bigger cleanups out on bombies.Light NW wind and tide now dropping. Dust off the gun to wash the working week away. Morning Report: Waves 3-6ft+ Swell SSE @13.5 sec,Winds WSW-SW 10-20 knots. Good push with better energy and solid sets. Size from mostly SSE with 6ft sets S facing beaches,smaller open beaches and enough to get reefs,point breaking and bombies capping. Into the day size steady with W>SW winds and easing energy by evening. Def worth a paddle though g rab bit more length for S facing spots.
