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 - Pretty Good

    Another good looking autumn morning and the E swell is a bit bigger in the 2ft range with some bigger ones on the more open beaches and light WSW winds early. They're forecast to go light ESE later in the morning and the tide is high early at 7.30am with low at 1.35pm. Early there are small ones all along the coast coming up to high tide, then later when the light ESE winds get up and the tide drops try the E facing points and S corners.The swell is forecast to increase a bit more during the day.
