Cape Conran Surf Guide

Cape Conran on the East Coast is a fairly exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Ideal winds are from the northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. A left hand reef. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Take care to avoid the rocks.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
