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 3ft @ 10 seconds. WNW winds 10 knots. Clean but swell still has a bit of rawness to it with a few closeouts around the open beaches, right hand point and high tide reefs will be the pick early. Winds will puff from the south west for the morning before swinging to the northeast later in the day.
