Information about the Trunk Bay - Shark Bay Surf forecast

The above surf forecast table for Trunk Bay - Shark Bay provides essential information for determining whether the surfing conditions will be good over the next 7 days. A general guide to surfing at Trunk Bay - Shark Bay can be found by selecting the local surf guide option on the grey menu.

If you surf the same spot (Trunk Bay - Shark Bay) regularly then make a mental note of the wave energy from the surf forecast table each time you go. Very soon you may start to choose your surf days based on the wave energy alone combined with our forecast of favourable offshore wind conditions. Our star ratings will help here and of course you will also find the usual wave height and period predictions on our surf forecasts as well as a full break down of the swell components under our advanced users option (to reveal that, click the little Einstein character under the tide times).
