Regional Surf Report

Surf Report Info

Region: Coffs Hbr - Park Beach to Sawtell

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

    We have see that predicted southerly change arrive through the night and protected southern corners are the only options today. The southerly swell will slowly increase out there although swell is south so those protected corners will need a little more size to get going and fingers crossed this arvo. Expect waves in the 2-3 ft range until late arvo or earlier tomorrow morning. Well worth a paddle in those corners and lookIng better for the weekend....Report by www.leewinklerssurfschool.com.au
