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 - Excellent

    It's cleaned up a fair bit overnight and winds are 'round to the SSE on the Mid Coast early, with just a bit of leftover wobble in the swell. It's a good size this morning with 6m+ average wave height readings on the Cape Du Coudiec buoy and 3' waves right along the coast. The tide is now starting to head out but that won't effect consistency much, the lower water will expose many of the reefs though in about 3 hours. The beachies will be solid through low tide late morning, and the swell will push back in with the incoming tide after lunch. High tide's at five and it's a biggie, so keep high tide favouring spots in mind. Winds are forecast to come up from the South and add some bumps during the day, but hopefully a late shift to the SE will save it. Crowds will be a factor today with a mass three day warning of the swell, and two surf comps on at Seaford. That being said... a little soujorn down the coast may yield some surprises...
