Clean conditions on all beaches with a light westerly wind. Main breaks around town are fairly flat early but the waves should pick up during the day. Head to the protected northern corners and open beaches for a morning surf. There will be small waves on these beaches but again it will increase. For surf lessons and equipment hire phone Port Macquarie Surf School 6584 7733.
Peter Hudson and his sons Grant & Wayne have been surfing the waves around Pt. Macquarie all their lives. Peter is a multiple Australian Title holder in both short and longboards and Grant and Wayne have both competed on the WQS international tour. When they’re not out surfing, they’ll be coaching at their Pt. Macquarie Surf School.
