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.

    The E swell is a bit smaller again this morning, but very clean in the in the 1-2ft range with light WSW winds. They're forecast to go SSE later in the morning and the tide is high early at 5.45am with low just a bit after noon. Early there are small ones all along the coast on the high tide, then later when the SSE wind pick up and the tide drops there'll be some very small on E facing points and S corners.
