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

    The swell is still only small, it's around 1 ft out of the ENE with the occasional bigger ones this morning. The winds are light N early with a strong S change about to hit and the tide is low at 6.45am, coming back in to a high at 12.50pm. Once the strong S change comes through try from Moffats to Currumundi, Alex to Maroochydore, Coolum and A Bay for a few small ones
