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

    There are a few small ones about again early this morning but you'll need to get in early. The swell is a bit messy and it has gone around to the ENE and is around 2ft with light W winds which unseasonally are forecast to go ENE later and the tide is high at 7.30am, it's dropping to a low at 1.44pm. Get in early for some small ones of average quality along the open beaches this morning on the high tide before the ENE winds come in and spoil conditions.
