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 @ 11 second. SW winds 11 knots. New S swell accompanied by S-SW winds not looking great on the open beaches. S corners will be pretty much your only option and are lacking in swell and quality at the moment. Lower tide may help out later in the day. Winds will increase from the S.
