Surf Report Info

Region: Palm Cove to Bulcock Beach

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.

    Update. Onshore NNE winds are up now messing conditions on most beaches up as the run of great weather continues. The swell is from the ESE in the 1 to 2ft range on the sets and the tide is low at 4.30pm. Try Kawana Pocket and Kings to shelter from the NNE sea breeze.
