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

    Unfortunately most of the SSE swell is not getting in onto the coast, it's 2-3ft on the open beaches with fresh SSW winds early. They're forecast to go strong SE later in the morning and the tide is low early at 7am, coming back in to a high at 12,43pm. Conditions are clean but it is still small, try the S protected stretches early, then check it later on the points and S corners when the SE winds get up.
