Regional Surf Report
Surf Report Info
Region: South West Rocks to Forster - Tuncurry
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 NW wind early is producing clean conditions on the northern corners and open beaches. We have 2 swells - decreasing S swell which is producing some bigger waves for the norther corners and a new NE swell. Best waves early to mid morning with the lighter wind and higher tide. The wind will strengthen from the E-NE. Main breaks around town are worth a look for the early surf. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
