Regional Surf Report

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

    Fresh SSW winds early with a small, clean SSE swell this morning in the 1-2ft range with some bigger ones on the more open beaches that pick up more of the S swell. The winds are forecast to go SSE later and the tide is high at mid morning with low at around 3.30pm this afternoon. There are some small ones on the E facing points and S protected stretches on the incoming tide this morning before the SSE winds pick up.
