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

    Strong southerly wind is producing clean conditions on the southern headlands. Swell is SE and only small but will increase in the afternoon. Main breaks around town have the cleanest conditions with waves suited to the beginner and micro grommet. Headlands south of Port will offer a few bigger waves during the afternoon especially with the wind decreasing. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A complex low pressure system, with multiple centres, lies off the New South Wales coast and will move away to the east today. Vigorous southerly winds on the western side of the low are expected to gradually ease during the day as the low loses influence and a high pressure ridge approaches from the west. This ridge is forecast to be slow-moving and remain the dominant feature in the region through the weekend. The next significant frontal system looks set to cross the coast during Monday and Tuesday.
Winds: South to southwesterly 15 to 25 knots, reaching 30 knots offshore in the morning, decreasing to 10 to 15 knots in the evening.
Seas: 2 to 3 metres, decreasing to 1 to 2 metres around midday.
Swell: Southerly 1 to 1.5 metres, increasing to 1.5 to 2.5 metres during the morning. Weather: Partly cloudy. 80% chance of showers.
