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 W - SW wind early is producing clean conditions on the southern corners. Swell is south with most of it passing straight by. Main breaks around town will be the pick of the beaches with the incoming tide producing the best waves. Open beaches have bigger waves with a strong northerly sweep so be prepared for a long paddle but get in early before the wind strengthens and swings SW - S.

Marine Outlook

Gusty west to southwesterly winds will develop today as the next cold front sweeps across the state, shifting more southerly during Thursday as the system moves away. Winds are expected to ease at the end of the week as a slow-moving high pressure system drifts across from the west and becomes the dominant feature in the region through the weekend.
Winds: West to southwesterly 15 to 20 knots, reaching 20 to 30 knots in the south in the evening.
Seas: 1 to 2 metres, increasing to 2 to 3 metres offshore.
Swell: Southerly 1 to 1.5 metres. Weather: Mostly sunny. 20% chance of a shower offshore this afternoon and evening.
