We should see some swell rise today along the coast out of the south direction. The winds are looking like they will increase also out of the SW-S direction leaving us camped in the southern corners again. The banks on majority of beaches do have plenty of closeouts and picking the correct tide for your local break is the key. Lee Winkler's Surf School - Ph 0266 5000 50.
Lee Winkler started surfing in his home town of Coffs Harbour when he was a schoolboy. He “took it to the limit” and was a touring pro on the WQS and WCT circuits for many years before returning home to Coffs, where he runs his Surf School and raises a family.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however Park Beach, Coffs Harbour is still patrolled by council lifeguards 7 days a week.
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.

Surfing Mums meet here!
Surfing mums is a network of women who surf and are mums (of course), but what sets them apart is that they still want to surf as much as we did before they had kids. Its not about how well you surf, or if you are a long boarder, short boarder, bodyboarder, body surfer or learning to surf. It's about getting wet and having fun!
