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.

    Update. A light NE sea breeze has come up and it's very cloudy and the swell is a bit lumpy from the E in the 1 up to 2ft range on the sets. The tide was low at 11.45am, high is at just before 6.30pm. Try the N protected corners at Kawana and Kings for some small ones.
