Surf Report Info

Region: Shoal Bay to Swansea

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

    ESE swell 3-4ft @ 7-8 seconds. NW winds 8 knots. Clean with peaks all over the place looks slightly unorganized but there are some really nice shaped waves every now and then, should improve through out the morning once the tide starts to head in. Winds are forecast to shift to the S-SW.
