SSE swell 4-5ft @ 9 seconds. WSW winds 10 knots. Conditions have settled slightly overnight with swell backing off. It is still solid on the open beaches but quality is average with lumpy cross shore chop. Protected southern corners offering the most predictable and manageable waves with semi clean though lumpy 3ft waves. there is plenty of swell worth surfing if you were keen.
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.
