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 - Pretty Good

    Light SW wind is producing clean conditions on the southern headlands. Swell is east. High tide around 8.30 this morning isn't helping the wave quality but it will improve once the tide starts dropping. Open beaches will be worth a look during the morning. The wind will swing S-SE and strengthen late afternoon. For surf lessons and board hire log on to www.portmacquariesurfschool.com.au or phone 6584 7733
