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 4-5ft @ 13 seconds. WNW winds 11 knots. Mid morning update swell has increased through out the morning with some solid consistent sets. New S swell with light offshore winds, looks like it will swing more to the S-SW soon. Beach breaks are not looking great but do have the odd wave, right hand points will be the pick.
