Regional Surf Report

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.

    More of the same with the SE swell at only around 1ft, up to 2ft on the sets on the more open beaches that pick up more of the S swell. Fresh S winds early that are forecast to go SSE later and the tide is low early at just after 7am, coming in to a high at 1.20pm. There are some tiny clean ones on the E facing points and the S protected corners on the incoming tide this morning with a bit more size from Peregian to A Bay. Once again, take the highest volume board that you've got.
