Conditions are very clean with light W winds early and 1-2ft of S swell on the inconsistent sets. The wind is predicted to be vary throughout the day, but stay mostly in the offshore direction. Try the swell magnets and the protected Southern corners for the cleanest faces.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April.
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.
