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 - Pretty Good

    SW wind early so the southern corners have the cleanest conditions for a surf. The swell is south and most of the wave action is going straight past. Main breaks around town are pretty flat but will have a few small waves on the incoming tide but the waves will favour the long boardrider. For a decent wave today drive south to the southern headlands. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A strong high pressure system south of the Bight is slowly moving east, extending a ridge across southeastern Australia and establishing a southwest to southeast airstream over the coastal waters. This ridge is expected be the dominant synoptic feature over the following few days. During Thursday a low pressure trough will develop over northeastern New South Wales as the high moves east across the southern Tasman Sea and the ridge weakens. The trough is expected to move offshore during Friday and deepen before moving away from the coast on Sunday.
Winds: Southerly 15 to 20 knots.
Seas: 1 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 metre around midday.
Swell: Southerly 1.5 to 2 metres.
Swell: Easterly around 1 metre. Weather: Partly cloudy. 80% chance of showers. A thunderstorm likely.
