Surf Report Mid Coast NSW

by Peter Hudson
  • 19/04/2014 7:19 AM | Report

    Perfect conditions and great waves on most beaches this morning with a westerly wind. Open beaches are attracting the largest waves which are definitely only for the experienced surfer and be prepared for a strong northerly sweep and a lot of duck diving. Southern headlands will have great waves all day with the more exposed headlands offering bigger waves. Main breaks around town have the smaller waves with early to late morning being the pick. 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.

Marine Outlook

A decaying cold front is bringing a southerly change to the northern New South Wales coast this morning, while a high pressure system near Adelaide extends a strengthening ridge into the state's west. This ridge is forecast to remain the dominant feature in the region during the next few days, although a weak trough is expected to move along the coast during Sunday.
Winds: Southwesterly 15 to 20 knots turning southerly in the afternoon.
Seas: 1 to 1.5 metres.
Swell: Southeasterly 2 to 3 metres. Caution: Large and powerful surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.
