Surf Report Info

Region: South West Rocks to Forster - Tuncurry

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

    Wind is SW early producing clean conditions on the southern headlands but there is a definite lack of waves. Swell is SE and very small. Wind is side shore on the open beaches but at least they have waves around 2ft while the southern corners are pretty flat. Main breaks around town will definitely suit the beginner with even the micro grommet finding it difficult to catch a waves.
