Regional Surf Report


Surf Report Info

Region: Thirroul to Shoalhaven Heads

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

    Surfs small today but slightly bigger than yesterday morning. Most beaches have 2-3ft of NE swell . Conditions are smooth on most beaches because of the light W wind this morning. The winds will swing NE later in the day and get strong. The protected north ends of beaches and south facing beaches will be the spots later in the day. Once again get down before lunch for some small but quality waves if you can..

    ...Coastalwatch Plus helps you find & surf better waves. Try it today.
