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

    A cool winter type morning and it's tiny, like Lake Pacific again this morning with only up to 1ft of ESE swell occasionally, it's almost flat. Conditions are clean with WSW winds that are forecast tom go SW later and low tide is at 8am with high tide just before 2pm. Tiny ones all along the open beaches on the incoming tide on a very high volume board. It's hardly worth the effort.
