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

    We've had a fresh SW change overnight and the run of clean E swell continues even if it is a bit smaller at around 2 up to 3ft on the sets. The winds are forecast to go strong SW later and it's low tide just before 9am, coming in to a high at 2.26pm. Nice ones all along the open beaches and E facing points this morning on the incoming tide before the strong SW winds knock the swell back a bit more.
