Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

by Peter Hudson
  • 18/04/2014 6:38 AM | Report

    Light westerly wind is producing clean conditions on most beaches early. Swell is still SE with the open beaches attracting some big waves. These beaches are only for the experienced surfer with a strong sweep to the north. Main breaks around town are missing most of the wave action but will still provide some fun waves. The wind will swing to the south leaving the southern headlands with the cleanest conditions for the rest of the day. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733.… Upgrade to Coastalwatch Plus today for your chance to win one of 2 Simon Anderson surfboards.
