Alex Headland Surf Report


Outlook Info


Energetic Easterly tradewind swell keeps coming at a consistent 3 to 4ft+ along exposed coasts today and there will be no shortage of smaller, better quality waves along the points and inside the bays. Conditions are cleanest early while light SW to SSW winds precede a shift to the SE to ESE at 15 to 20 knots and occasionally stronger into the afternoon. Have a great Easter.

    There is some more kick in the Easterly Tradewind Swell this morning with waves in the 3-4ft range on the open exposed beaches. Surf conditions will be best through the morning with SSW winds with conditions deteriorating through the day with the forecast strong ESE winds. Open beaches early then head to the sheltered points once the wind kicks in. Enjoy your Easter Long Weekend in the waves. Spinksy
