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

    The run of great winter weather continues, but there's still not a lot of happening on the surfing front with only 1 up to 2ft of ENE swell on the sets and light WNW winds early. The winds are forecast to go NNW, before going NNE later and the tide at 9.15am, dropping to a low at 3.15pm. Some small fun ones all along the N protected stretches early on the highest volume board you've got. Kawana and Kings later when the NNE winds get up.
