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 - Pretty Good

    Smooth conditions on our beaches this morning with a very light W-NW wind. Swell is SE. Open beaches and northern corners have waves around 4ft but with the occasional bigger sets. Southern corners have smaller waves but they are still good. Main breaks around town have a few smaller waves with the morning offering the better conditions. Wind will swing NE and the northern corners will have the cleaner conditions for the afternoon surf. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
