Surf Report Info

Region: South West Rocks to Forster - Tuncurry

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

    Conditions are a little messy for the early surf due to the strength of the onshore wind yesterday. Swell is NE, big and packing some punch. As the SW wind strengthens it will clean up the waves on the southern headlands. Headlands north of Port will be the pick. Main breaks around town will remain pretty messy due to the amount of water coming out of the river.
