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

    Small and clean again this morning with a small E swell in the 1-2ft range on the open beaches. The winds are light W early, they're forecast to go strong SW later and the tide low early, coming into a high just before noon. Small ones all along the coast this morning on the incoming tide on the highest volume board you've got. Let's hope the incoming tide gives it a touch more size and that the strong W winds don't flatten it.
