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

    Just average conditions for the start of Spring with the ESE swell uneven in the 1 to 2 ft range. Light W winds early that trying to clean conditions up, but they're forecast to go NE later and high tide is just before 8am with low at 2pm. Small average waves again, all along the coast early on high tide before the onshore winds get up. Try Kawana Pocket and Kings later.
