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

    Light offshore wind is producing clean conditions on most beaches but the waves are only small. Swell is from the south. Southern corners will have clean conditions all day. Wind will swing SW to S during the morning but remain light. Open beaches will offer a few bigger waves around 2-3ft but the sandbanks are pretty average. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A complex slow-moving low pressure system lies over the southern Tasman Sea while a high pressure system south of Tasmania extends a ridge across New South Wales. The low is expected to move further southeast today with strong winds on the south coast easing later today or tonight. During Wednesday another low and an associated trough will move into New South Wales with winds tending northwesterly ahead of it. The trough should then bring a southerly change to the coast during Thursday.
Winds: Southwesterly 10 to 15 knots tending southerly in the late afternoon then becoming variable about 10 knots in the late evening.
Seas: Around 1 metre, decreasing below 1 metre later in the evening.
Swell: Southerly 2 to 2.5 metres. Weather: Mostly sunny.
