Conditions are semi clean with light W winds early and 3-4ft of SSE swell on the sets. The wind is predicted to grow in strength throughout the day along with the swell size, but stay mostly in the offshore direction. Try the protected Southern corners early before the wind picks up for the cleaner 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.
