Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

by Peter Hudson
  • 29/08/2014 6:45 AM | Report

    Strong SW wind has cleaned up the surf with the southern corners producing some large powerful waves. Surf is definitely only for the more experienced surfer. Swell is ENE. Those big wave spots that only break a few times a year are handling this large swell but be careful if you venture out. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
