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

    It looks like a great day for the micro grommet and beginner surfer. Wind is west early and produce clean conditions. A small NE wind swell is trying to producing a few waves. Southern corners will be the pick. Main breaks around town will have a few small waves. Wind will turn SW and strengthen in the afternoon.

A strong cold front will bring a gale-force southwesterly change to southern waters today, weakening somewhat as it moves through central waters. A high pressure ridge will develop over the coast on Tuesday before another cold front crosses southern and central waters during Wednesday. Strong southwest winds are likely to persist over most of the coast on Thursday.

Seas: Around 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres during the morning, then increasing to 1.5 to 2.5 metres around midday.
Swell: Southerly below 1 metre, tending southwesterly 1 to 1.5 metres around midday. Weather: Mostly sunny. 20% chance of a shower offshore south of Crowdy Head at night. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere.
