    Today's rating

    Cloudy with the swell from the SE in the 2-3ft range and light SSW winds early. Strong SE winds are forecast later this morning, easing back this afternoon and the tide is high at 7.11am, dropping to a low just after 1pm. The Tweed Coast, D'bah and TOS have more size with smaller, cleaner ones on the Goldie points the pick later as the tide drops and the SE winds pick up. The open beaches are messy.
