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.

    Today's rating - Poor

    Update. Light ESE winds, a great looking day and it's flat. Nice for a swim. Early Report. It's tiny this morning with the ESE swell only up in the 1ft range on the more open beachesand looking like Lake Pacific. Conditions are clean early with SW winds, forecast to go SSW, then ESE later in the day and the low tide is just after 10.40am, with high at 5.10pm. There is not much doing at all, just tiny ones all along the open beaches early on a very high volume board before the sea breeze comes in
