The SSE swell is in the 3ft range with it bigger on the Tweed Coast and the winds are fresh SSW early. They're forecast to go strong SSE later in the morning. The tide is coming in to a high at 8.50am, dropping to a low at 2.30pm. The points have some nice ones on the incoming tide and are the pick early with D'bah and TOS having more size as the tide rises. Swell is a bit straight for the beachies.
John Charlton spreads his time between the Gold & Sunshine Coasts. He’s been surfing this area for many a year and is totally in tune with all the different breaks and how the varying swell and wind patterns affect this wave plentiful region.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however Salt Resort main beach is still patrolled by lifeguards 7 days a week. Byron Main Beach will be patrolled by lifeguards 7 days a week until 9 June, 2013.
Please do not take any risks during the off-season period. No Flags = No Swim! The majority of beach patrols will again commence on the first day of the September School Holidays.
