Yanerbie Surf Guide

Yanerbie on the West Coast is a fairly exposed reef break that only works once in a while. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the east northeast. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. A right hand reef. Best around low tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of rocks, rips and sharks.

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.
