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

    Average conditions on our beaches this morning. Wind is moderate S-SE. Swell is SE and on the increase. Most of the wave action is going straight past the southern headlands with only a few small waves getting in. Waves should pick up as the tide drop. Main breaks around town are the pick of the beaches but some have a fair amount of red weed in them. For beginner, intermediate and advanced surf courses and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A slow-moving pressure low system lies over the eastern Tasman Sea while a high pressure system southeast of the Bight extends a ridge northwards along the coast. These two systems are directing fresh to strong south to southeasterly winds along the New South Wales coast. Winds will gradually ease today as the low moves further east and the high moves over the southwestern Tasman Sea, strengthening a ridge to the north coast.
Winds: Southerly 15 to 20 knots, reaching up to 25 knots offshore during the day. Winds turning southeasterly in the morning.
Seas: 1.5 to 2 metres.
Swell: Southeasterly 2 to 2.5 metres.
Swell: Easterly below 1 metre, tending east to southeasterly 1 to 1.5 metres by early evening. Weather: Cloudy. 70% chance of showers. Caution: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
