Surf Report Info

Region: Ocean Grove to 13th 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 - Pretty Good

    Super clean crisp conditions due to a light NW wind. The swell is nice and straight mainly 2ft but very inconsistent so you'll need to be patient. Low tide early will be best on swell magnet reefs, beaches at 13th and points. Enjoy! For LIVE Surf Cams Ad Free on any device upgrade to Coastalwatch PLUS today. Just $0.99 for the first 8 weeks.
