Each of the forecast pages for this surf break feature a global and regional wavefinder tool to locate the best surf conditions in the area around Sharkbay.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
