E swell 4-6ft+ @ 9 seconds on open beaches. NW winds 10 knots. Solid E swell still pushing in. Conditions have improved with clean surfaces under offshore winds. Worth getting in the car and having a look at the options but it is for the experienced surfers only. Throw in a step up board to tackle the rogue sets. Lots of new sand formations with the recent swell and beach erosion.
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.
