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-ESE swell 3ft @ 11 seconds. WNW winds 8 knots. Clean lines again, swell has backed off slightly since yesterdays increase but there are still some decent sets. High tide early is filling up the beaches so check high tide reefs first. Winds should remain from the NW for the day, lower tide should help out around the beach breaks.
