Surf Report

This weekend on the Coffs Coast we will see a short period south swell push in on Saturday taking a bit of punch out of the waves, compared to the east swells we have been rece

ving.

Winds will be fairly strong from the south but will ease over the weekend. Sunday the swell will swing back to the east and this combined with lighter southerly winds will ensure some fun waves in our southern corners.

Moving into next week the swell will drop of a little and this combined with light winds will ensure most beaches will have waves for surfers of all levels.

All up it looks like a good week for waves and with a fair bit of sand moving around at all our beaches the potential for some great banks is sure to keep surfers excited.
