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 - Pretty Good

    The surfs dropped a bit overnight but still some solid waves about with 5-6 ft of S swell and some bigger sets on the beaches open to the swell. The wind is light from the SW and will swing more SE and get stronger before easing abit late this avo. Best spots are the south ends of beaches, the north facing beaches and the north side of points and these will be best all day.Only experienced surfers should go out today.
