NORTH COAST SURF REPORT

The coastline has been battered by blustery northerly winds for over a week now and they look like hanging around over the weekend. Consequences of these conditions are small wind swell waves and cold water upwellings, sounds like summer to me! Today’s pictures taken at Macauleys in Coffs Harbour around 11am were about as good as you could expect in the conditions. Some fun half metre right handers on the sets were helping relieve the frustation of the few surfers out. cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 20-11-09

Our pictures today were taken at the northern end of the Moonee Beach Nature Reserve showing a pod of dolphins near a small group of surfers. The waves were small and clean but infrequent, which led to one surfer paddling in amoungst the dolphin pod to experience the creatures up close and personal. He even dived off his board under the water to eyeball the mammal, brave or silly? I’m not sure? Although the wind was a strong northerly, surface conditions were smooth thanks to the protection of the long and tall “Look at me now” headland. Surfwise, things will be pretty much the same over the weekend. cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 09-10-09

Wind and swell aplenty today meant the most protected points were offering up the quality waves. Our pictures were taken off the northern breakwall in Coffs Harbour today around 10am showing the popular bodyboarding spot known as “The Reef” offering up some fun short barrels. The swell is very south with 20 knot winds affecting any open beaches. With the swell predicted to hang around over the weekend there should be plenty of sore and tired bodies floating around. cheers, noel.

NORT COAST SURF REPORT 02-10-09

Really tiny waves on offer today but that did’nt stop a couple of surfers making the most of it and enjoying the challenge riding the small swells at Gallows in Coffs Harbour. Our pictures taken around 2pm show a strong northerly blowing which should give way to a southerly change this evening. Prospects of surfable swells are for Sunday or Monday. Cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 25-09-09

Early today the surf looked a little winter like, by mid morning it looked a lot summer like. Our pictures today were taken at Diggers Beach in Coffs Harbour and show a clean one metre plus swell with a light onshore breeze creating very inviting looking conditions. There were plenty of takers on hand with most barely taking a second glance before hitting the water. Unfortunately forcasts are for decreasing swell over the weekend so it will be a case of checking out the most reliable swell magnets for surf. Good luck, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 04-09-09

Small clean and cold surf on offer at the back beaches along the North Coast this morning. Why are they called back beaches? Probably because the most predominate surf conditions are created when southerly winds fan the points and bays up and down the coast. This means the beaches that face the north are most protected and produce cleaner waves. So when the winds are from the north we head to those backbeaches lurking on the southern side of the headlands. Our pictures today were taken at Gallows on the southern side of the harbour in Coffs Harbour around 10 o’clock this morning. Although the wind was blowing quite strong the surf is protected by the island or headland. The waves were clean around half to one metre and looked fun for the few blokes out. Southerlies are forcast for …

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 28-08-09

Its been slim pickings all week with a small pulse in swell throughout Wednesday and Thursday, if you were on the ball some punchy peaks were up for grabs. Today our cameras were back at Gallows in Coffs Harbour and spotted a few surfers enjoying half metre messy waves. The wind was a light north easterly today but strong northerly winds the previous day have not helped wave quality. Keep a close eye on your local swell magnets over the weekend and you just might get lucky. Cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 21-08-09

While it is great that the weather has a summer tinge to it at the moment, what’s not so good is the summer-like flat spot in swell. Our pictures taken at Gallows in Coffs Harbour today looked every bit summertime, the wind was a stiff northerly and the swell barely knee high. Boardshorts, longboards and even a paddleboard were the order of the day. Even though wetsuits were needed by some, everyone in the water seemed to be having a ball. Shortboard riders may have to consider other options for the weekend as the small waves are predicted to prevail over the weekend. Cheers, noel.

NORTH COAST SURF REPORT 14-08-09

Decisions, decisions, left or righthanders? what bank to chose? Life is full of choices and today the surf was full of options. With one to one and a half metres of swell, light south to south west winds and several banks to chose from, today Diggers Beach in Coffs Harbour was splendid in all its glory. Did I mention the Solitary Islands that form the backdrop to the bay? What a picture. There has been some quality waves all along the coast over the past few days and conditions are predicted to continue into the weekend. If you can, drop what plans you may have and make the most of it. cheers, noel.
