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.

    Overcast and the E swell is a bit bigger this morning in the 2ft range with some bigger sets on the open beaches. Fresh SSW winds early that are forecast to go SSE. then ESE later and high tide is at 9.20am with low at 3.35pm. Small ones in the S corners and E facing points are the cleanest options again early. Very small ones in the outer bays at Noosa again later in the day when the tide drops and the winds go to the ESE.
