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

    Most of our beaches have a few fun waves this morning. Wind is very light W to NW. Swell is east. Main breaks around town have waves with the morning session being the pick. The sandbanks have really improved on these beaches over the last few days. Open beaches also worth a look although the sandbanks are better on the lower tide. Northern corners will have clean conditions and waves all day. Wind will swing NE but remain light. For surf lessons and board hire log on to www.portmacquariesurfschool.com.au or phone 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A high pressure system near New Zealand extends a ridge to the northwest, directing east to northeasterly winds along the north coast of New South Wales. At the same time, a trough is slowly moving up southern and central parts of the coast bringing a southerly change. Winds throughout are expected to turn southeasterly during Saturday as a another high pressure system moves east over Tasmania. Southeasterly winds will be maintained in the new week as this second high becomes established over the southern Tasman Sea and extends a ridge to the coast.
Winds: East to northeasterly about 10 knots.
Seas: Below 1 metre, increasing to around 1 metre south of Port Macquarie.
Swell: Easterly around 1 metre. Weather: Partly cloudy.
