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

    It's looking very flat this morning with the S swell still sliding past offshore and it's smaller with only up to 1ft of ESE swell. The winds are light WSW early, forecast to go SSW, then SSE later with high tide early, dropping to low just before noon . Ripple riding only early on the dropping tide with a touch more of the S swell getting in from Peregian to A Bay.
