Regional Surf Report


Surf Report Info

Region: Thirroul to Shoalhaven Heads

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 - Poor

    Surfs tiny . Most beaches lucky to have 2ft of ENE swell .Conditions are smooth early with light W winds .The winds will swing light N then NE later today . The north ends and south facing beaches will be best with the N winds. If your keen get down early.Break out the SUP.
