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 - Average

    S swell 4-5ft @ 8 seconds. SW winds 8 knots. Swell is up but there is not a lot of quality around. High tide reefs and right hand points may be worth a look later in the morning as the tide fills in, S corners will be your best chance of a surf early. SW-SE winds will stay with us for the day.
