Information about the Newcastle - The Wedge Surf forecast

A general guide to surfing at Newcastle - The Wedge can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu.

Further information to help with frequently asked questions about our surf forecast for Newcastle - The Wedge may be found under the help tab on the top menu and also by moving your mouse over the question marks on the surf forecast table itself. Please always bear in mind that the forecast is for near-shore open water and local factors at each surf break influence the actual breaking wave height, such as the beach / reef profile, water depths offshore and shelter.
