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

    The waves have settled down this morning starting to look a lot more organised and in the 4 ft range with larger sets in exposed beaches.The winds will tend more SW-S during the day and best to get out this morning and enjoy the offshore wind. Stick to the southern corners all day and well worth a paddle after the last few days a rough weather.....
