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

    Northerly wind early leaving the northern corners with the only clean conditions on our beaches. Two swells present with a SE swell decreasing and a north swell. Northern corners will offer the better waves on the higher tide. Northerly swell should produce some nice lefts running down these beaches. Wind will increase in the afternoon and even the northern corners will become messy. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
