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

    A great looking morning but it's quite small with the SSE at only around 1ft, up to 2ft on the sets on the more open beaches that pick up more of the S swell. Conditions are very clean early with light W winds that are forecast to go SW, then SSE later and the tide is low early, coming in to a high just after noon. There are some tiny clean ones on the E facing points and the open beaches on the incoming tide this morning with a bit more size from Peregian to A Bay. Take the highest volume board that you've got.
