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

    Strong SW wind is up early and producing clean conditions on the southern headlands but there is a definite lack of waves this morning. Swell is south and small but will increase during the day. There should be a few decent sized waves late this afternoon as that swell picks up. The morning surf will suit the beginner and micro grommet.
