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 will see the waves build along the coast today and they are in the 3-4 ft range this morning on exposed beaches. The southern corners are going to be the pick of it early before we see the wind pick up out of the NW-N direction. Well worth a surf early and some fun ones for experienced surfers Report by www.leewinklerssurfschool.com.au Ph 0266 500050.
