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.

    Some fun waves around this morning with most beaches averaging 2ft of SE swell. Conditions are a smooth at the moment with a light W wind. Later the wind is forcasted to go NE and with that the northern ends of beaches and south side of points will be best.
