Mid North Coast NSW Surf Report

Mid North Coast NSW Surf Report - Beginners & Kids

Coffs Harbour to Crescent Head, Port Macquarie to Seal Rocks

Sunday 15/3/15

Best Beginners & Kids Surf Spots* 

 

Coffs Coast:   Southern ends of beaches like Arrawarra, Woolgoolga, Emerald & Diggers Beach, best in the morning for smaller & smoother waves.

South West Rocks to Point Plomer:  Sheltered Southern ends of beaches like Hat Head & Crescent Head Beaches, best in the morning for smaller & smoother waves.

Port Macquarie to Seal Rocks: Sheltered Southern ends of beaches like those between Port Macquarie & Crowdy Head, Old Bar Beaches, One Mile Beach Forster & Number One Beach Seal Rocks, best in the morning for smaller & smoother waves.

Expect bigger waves on open beaches & for the swell to potentially build during the afternoon.

 

Remember, catching green (unbroken) waves is often easier on mid to high tides (less nosedives) or if the waves are too big or challenging, surf whitewater waves close to shore, which is normally best on mid to low tides in waist deep water.

Best beaches to practise catching green (unbroken) waves & turns*

 

Monday 16/3/15

Big waves & potentially dangerous surf conditions, so give surfing a miss if the surf is too challenging with very sheltered beaches a potential option like:

Coffs Coast:   Try Southern corner of Arrawarra Beach or even Jetty Beach (expect bumpy waves on South winds) - give surfing a miss if the surf is too big or challenging.

South West Rocks to Point Plomer:  Try Trial Bay Gaol inside sandbar - give surfing a miss if the surf is too big or challenging.

Port Macquarie to Seal Rocks: Try Crowdy Head & Number One Beach Seal Rocks - give surfing a miss if the surf is too big or challenging.

 

Remember, catching green waves is often easier on mid to high tides (less nosedives) or if the waves are too big or challenging, surf whitewater waves close to shore, which is normally best on mid to low tides in waist deep water.
