Surf Report Info
Region: Palm Cove to Bulcock Beach
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
The E swell keeps hanging in there even if it is a touch smaller this morning. Conditions are really clean again early with light W winds and it is around 3ft with some bigger sets on the incoming tide. The winds are forecast to go to a NW later this morning, then around to the ESE this arvo and high tide is at 9.10am with low just after 3pm. There are waves all along the coast coming up to the high tide where ever you can find a bank. Going early will again be the best value before the sea breeze comes up ...
