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 - Pretty Good

    The swell is out of the ESE in the 2-4ft range this morning with fresh S winds up early. It's smaller and cleaner in the S corners and strong SE winds are forecast later with the tide low early, coming in to a high at 11.30 am. Once again the open beaches are messy with the E facing points and S corners having some nice ones early before the strong SE winds get up.
