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.

    Surfs small .Most beaches have 2ft of bumpy S swell with the odd bigger set .Conditions will be smooth in the morning with NW winds that will swing north and get stronger before becoming lighter later. The north ends of beaches and the south facing beaches will be the best spots with the north winds..
