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.

    More of the same with 2ft of ENE swell and some odd bigger sets and light NW winds early. The winds are forecast to go NNW later and the tide at 10am, dropping to a low at 4pm. Some small fun ones all along the N protected stretches early on the highest volume board you've got. The top end of Sunshine, Kawana and Kings later when the NNW winds pick up more.
