    Today's rating

    The swell is a bit uneven in the 2 up to 3ft range on the more open beaches from the ESE with very light offshore winds from the WSW early. They're forecast to go around to the ENE later and the tide is high at 7.45am with low tide at 1.47pm. Get in early before the onshore winds get up for some average quality ones, D'bah and TOS the pick with more size and the points have a few before they fill up more with the tide. Check out the Byron Bay Surf Festival this weekend - surf culture now.
