Surf Conditions

PREPARE for a settled week of waves on the Coffs Coast.

A medium-sized, south-east swell will fill in Friday or Saturday and slowly drop off as we move into next week.

Winds will be light for most of the week starting from the south on Saturday and swinging to the north on Sunday.

There will be plenty of waves around for surfers of all abilities and with light winds there will be plenty of options for places to surf.


Local surf news

Local Longboarders Jared Neal and Harley Ingleby have been competing in the World Longboard event at Tupira in Papua New Guinea.

From all reports waves have been pumping at the right-hand point break.

At time of print, Harley was through to the quarter finals with Jared unfortunately being knocked out in the third round but not before picking up a near perfect nine point ride in his round two heat.

Results and live action can be seen at www.worldsurfleague.com.


Global surf news

The first event of this year's world tour for men and women was held at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast.

In the end it was Owen Wright in his comeback event taking out last year's event champ Matt Wilkinson, in an all goofy-foot final.

In the women's it was local favourite Steph Gilmore who took the win over an in-form Lakey Peterson.

The world tour moves west for the Drug Aware Pro at Margaret River.

The long range forecast for the event looks promising with the waiting period starting on Wednesday, March 29.

Let's hope the surf gets big enough for the event to run at the world class wave of North Point.
