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.

    It's mild on the Mid Coast early with a light North wind, and a change on the way. Swell has dropped overnight and it's carrying a bit of a wobble from the wind, with waves around 1' on the reefs. The dropping tide and stronger North winds will soon finish it off, with gusts up to 30knots forecast for later today. The wind will ease a bit late arvo and tend more NW, but we won't see much change in wave heights. The beachies look good for kiting /sailing through the middle part of the day, another big tide will kill the swell tonight. Temporarily...
