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 perfect looking morning for the start of Spring with very clean conditions early with light W winds. The run of very small waves continues with the swell clean from the ESE in the 1 up to 2ft range on the sets. The winds are forecast to go SW, then GO NNE later in the day and the tide is high at 9.45am with low is at 3.45pm. Small ones along the coast early on the incoming tide this morning on the highest volume board you've got before the sea breeze comes in.
