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 - Good

    Conditions are cleaner this morning with light S winds and the swell from the E in the 2 up to 3ft range on the sets and a bit uneven. SSE winds are forecast later and the tide was high early at 5.30am with low at noon. The pick early again are the S corners with the E facing points and smaller ones at Noosa as the tide drops and the winds go around SSE during the morning.
