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

    Excellent conditions on most beaches with a light offshore wind. Swell is south and the open beaches are attracting some decent waves. Southern headlands are missing most of the wave action. Main breaks around town are pretty small. Wind will swing NE and strengthen in the afternoon leaving the northern corners with the cleanest conditions. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
