Regional Surf Report


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

    It's another morning of offshores and clean conditions on the Mid Coast, with small lines hitting the reefs coming up to high tide. Surf is only around 1' and a bit full and inconsistent, but rideable on a longer / floatier board. Once the tide drops a bit some spots may improve, but all the water draining from the gulf will kill it mid morning. The lower tide will favour the beachies at lunch ( for closeouts :/ ), and the incoming tide may see the swell get a small top up. Winds will go more SSE after lunch and pick up after dropping out for a glass-off late morning. The evening will see small waves and a return to SE winds and cleaner conditions.
