  • Today's rating - Good

    Ballina regional report: 7.40am Wednesday: Leftover easterly swell and slight NE windswell is hanging in at a peaky knee to chest high across the exposed beaches. Light and variable winds are producing pretty clean conditions and it's still well worth a paddle - just be sure to take your foamiest sled.

    Rest of the Day: Easterly swell is still on a slow decline, so expect less size and consistency, particularly as the tide fills in to a 1.06pm high of 1.45m. Light offshore westerly winds gradually turn light to moderate north to NE this arvo, adding some texture into the mix - but otherwise expect still surfable conditions throughout the afternoon. Have a good one.
