Stormy conditions with SSW winds and 4-5ft + of messy SE swell. The winds are forecast to get stronger later from the S and it is not very inviting this morning. There is a lot of water moving around. Once again the only option is to try the S corners and points if you're keen and experienced.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however the following beaches at Soldiers and Shelley Beach are still patrolled by council lifeguards 7 days a week until the end of May.
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.
