Surf Report Info

Region: Seaford

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

    2015's first stormy arrived with a bang in the early hours of the morning, and winds are gusting near 40 knots as they shift to the West. Swell is on the rise but a big component is from the wind, with waves around 3' along the coast. It's gonna build to a fair sized stormy today, with strong onshore winds blowing for several hours and only easing off a bit in the evening. Check out all your favourite stormy haunts and you'll find waves - Dumpers, The Cove, and of course Adelaide's worst kept secret. The arvo tide is a biggie and it'll have some surge behind it, so metro jetties should get a run after lunch, and their beaches will probably get swamped.
