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 - Pretty Good

    E swell 3ft @ 8 seconds. NNW winds 11 knots. Swell has backed off a lot but there are still some decent waves around, swell has swung a lot and is showing signs of a hint of N in it which should offer a wave at a few different locations. Conditions are clean and should remain that way for the remainder of the day as strong NW winds are forecast.
