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

    Light offshore wind is producing clean conditions on most beaches and there are some fun waves around. Swell is SSE and has picked up overnight. Open beaches are offering some solid waves around 6ft with the occasional bigger set. Southern corners are missing a lot of the wave action but still have some nice waves. Main breaks around town will be best on the incoming tide. Best waves will be found across the river. For surf lessons and board hire contact Port Macquarie Surf School on 6584 7733
