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

    Light SW wind is producing clean conditions on the southern headlands but there is a definite lack of waves. The swell is south and going straight past. Open beaches are worth a look even though they are a little messy. Main breaks around town will again favour the beginner and micro grommet. Let's hope the waves pick up as the tide drops out. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
