The surf heights forecasted for South Coast NSW

The Coastalwatch 'Surf Forecast' refers to breaking wave heights in the surf zone that are forecasted for a region. Coastalwatch provides 14 regional surf forecast daily across Australia.
Because each is regional forecast, consider there may be variations between the wave heights predicted and what you can expect at your local surf due to variables. For example; orientation to the coast, ocean floor bathymetry, local weather and many other local idiosyncrasies may effect the swell and weather patterns causing differing wave heights. Always use this forecast as a guide - for more detail, please read the Swell Analysis.

  • Recap Expect small to tiny levels of SE swell in the 1 to 2ft range on Tuesday morning, preceding a strong push in mid-sized SE groundswell during the afternoon; speculatively peaking in the 3 to 5ft range across exposed breaks. Read more
