SE swell 3ft. @ 7 secs. NW winds 6 knots. Open beaches are looking slightly bumped up but will improve as the tide runs out, high tide reefs will be your best chance early. Banks around town look a touch better than the past few months so hopefully things are on the mend. Report by Peztronic.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however Nobby’s and Bar Beach are 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.
