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 - Average

    An early morning westerly wind is producing clean conditions on most beaches. Swell is large and from the south. Open beaches have large waves while the southern headlands will be a better choice for a surf. Most of the southerly swell is going past these points but they are still attracting some nice waves. Main breaks around town will be best this morning on the higher tide. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
