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

    SW wind early is producing clean conditions on the southern headlands. Swell is south with most of it going straight past. Open beaches have a few solid waves but it is messy. Main breaks around town have excellent conditions and smaller waves. The incoming tide will produce the better conditions. Wind will be SW to S all day decreasing in the late afternoon.
