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

    S swell 3-4ft @ 8 seconds. WSW winds 11 knots. Messy on the open beaches, swell has come up and the southern corners will offer a clean wave in the 2-3ft range. We should see a mix in swell today with an increase in both north and south swell which could make thing interesting later in the day. Strong SW winds forecast for later.
