  • Today's rating - Poor

    Ballina Regional Surf Report: 7.05am.  Sunday, 6 December: Northerly wind is up early and there's a strong wind warning for northerly winds to increase today helping to push up a NE windswell 2ft+ but really messy on the exposed breaks and southern corners. Way better off in the northerly protected corners. Similar to yesterday but with a new mix of NE wind swell after yesterday's northerly winds. Best to get in early before northerly winds increase. Low tide was at 6 am with a  high tide at 1.18 pm. It's average at the best but worth a paddle to get wet and keep your fitness intact for a better day.  Rest of Day Outlook: Expecting much the same size throughout the day in the 1 - 2ft range although it is tipped to increase from the NE in the 1 - 3ft range for this afternoon. It's that time of year when summer northerly winds dominate. Head for a northerly protected corner. The next low tide is at 8 pm. Stay hydrated, use a hat, UV sunscreen & zinc, and find cover from the heat. Have a great Sunday.
