Surf Report Info

Region: Shoal Bay to Swansea

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

    ESE swell 3ft @ 8 seconds. SSW winds 9 knots. Messy conditions on the open beaches with ordinary surf, not looking good at any locations this morning. Winds will remain from the south but will decrease in to the afternoon. Swell has increased a little since earlier on and there are some 3ft set with the odd bigger one.
