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

    Update. A perfect winter's day as the run of small waves continues with 1-2ft of clean E swell and light offshore WNW winds. The winds are forecast to be light and variable at under 10 knots all day and the tide is dropping to a low at 1.40pm. Just some small ones all along the open beaches on the highest volume board you can lay your hands on.
