Surf Report Newcastle-Hunter

    Today's rating

    SE swell 2ft @ 7 seconds. ESE winds 11 knots. Persistent onshore winds and a low tide at 8am are making the surf look very poor and uninspiring for an early surf. The odd wave coming off at the open beaches though it is lumpy and mostly closing out. It can only improve later with a higher tide and as winds swing NE later and refuge can be found in the northern corners. You can win a holiday to Hawaii for you and a mate - check the site for more details.
