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

    There's still not a lot of action out there as the run of small waves continues with 1-2ft of clean, but a bit uneven E swell this morning and light NW winds. The winds are forecast to be light and variable at under 10 knots all day and the tide is high early at just after 7.30am, dropping to a low at 1.40pm. Just some small ones all aong the open beaches this morning on the highest volume board you can lay your hands on.
