Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

by Peter Hudson
  • 20/08/2014 6:46 AM | Report

    Strong SW wind early is producing clean conditions on our southern headlands. The bigger headlands will provide more protection from the wind. Swell is south with most of it going straight past but some is getting in. Main breaks around town have excellent sandbanks with the incoming tide providing the best waves. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733

Marine Outlook

A low pressure system over the central Tasman Sea is moving east, while a high is centred to the west of Bass Strait. This high will be the dominant feature in the region during the next few days as it drifts slowly east and extends a ridge northwards along the New South Wales coast. Strong Wind Warning for Wednesday for Macquarie Coast
Winds: Southerly 15 to 25 knots, locally reaching 30 knots in the morning.
Seas: 2 to 3 metres, decreasing to 1.5 to 2 metres by evening.
Swell: South to southeasterly 2 to 3 metres, decreasing to 2 to 2.5 metres by evening. Caution: Large and powerful surf conditions in the morning are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
