Regional Surf Report

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

    It's an excellent day for the beginner and micro grommet. Light offshore wind early producing clean conditions. Swell is NE and small. Northern corners will be worth a look on the higher tide and will offer a few small peaks but the day looks best for the micro grommet.

Marine Outlook

A complex low pressure system is centred over central Victoria, while an associated cold front is moving through northeast New South Wales. This low is expected to move southeast, to be positioned in eastern Bass Strait by this evening. Vigorous west to northwesterly winds will prevail in the wake of the front, and generally remain westerly while easing over the weekend as the low pressure system moves offshore. Winds will shift north to northeasterly by late Sunday ahead of the next cold front expected to affect coastal waters on Monday.
Winds: West to northwesterly 15 to 25 knots reaching up to 30 knots offshore at times.
Seas: 1.5 to 2.5 metres.
Swell: North to northeasterly 1 to 2 metres, decreasing to around 1 metre during the morning. Weather: Sunny morning. 30% chance of a shower during this afternoon and evening.
