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 the swell from the E at around 1 to 2ft. and the winds are light offshore from the SW. They're forecast to increase from the SW later so it should stay clean all day and the tide is high at 9.44am, it's dropping to a low at 3.45pm. Small beachies all along the coast this morning on the incoming tide where ever you can find a bank.
