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

    Overcast with light S winds this morning and the swell is from the ENE and is around 2 up to 3ft and a bit uneven. The winds are forecast to increase from the S later and the tide is high at 9am, it's dropping to a low at 3.05pm. The S protected stretches are the pick early on the rising tide before the S winds get any stronger. Later the E facing points will be the pick.
