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 - Average

    Update. Fresh WNW winds now but conditions are still a bit messy on most beaches. The swell is from the ENE in the 2ft range and the tide was high at 11.30am, low is just before 6pm. The N protected corners of Sunshine, Yaroomba, Kawana Pocket and Kings are the cleanest options

    ...... Check out the Father's Day Special on Coastalwatch. A gift to stoke every surfing dad.
