ESE swell 3-5ft @ 9 seconds. NW winds 10 knots shifting S later. Swell has eased off and turned from the E to the ESE overnight and there are still some good waves on offer at most locations. Conditions are still clean ahead of a southerly change due soon. Still the odd rogue set wave but not as big as yesterday, worth surfing. Check southern corners once southerly hits.
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.
