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.

    Clean conditions early with light W winds and only a small 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 WNW, then NNW later and the tide is low early, coming in to a high at 11.11am. There are some small clean ones on the E facing points and the open beaches on the incoming tide this morning. There is more size from Peregian to A Bay.
