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.

    Light NW-N wind is producing clean conditions on the northern corners. The rest of our beaches are pretty messy. Swell is SE. The wind will swing west mid morning and strengthen. Once that wind swings most beaches will offer good waves. Main breaks around town will have the better conditions especially in the afternoon as the tide drops out. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
