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

    Small and clean early with light SW winds, but the swell is still only small from the E and only in the 1ft range, with some occasional 2ft er's on the sets. SE winds forecast later this morning and the tide is dropping to low at 11.15am, with high at 4.35pm. Small ones all along the coast early on the higher tide before the winds go SE. The S corners and E facing points later but it is only very small.
