    Northern NSW Morning Report, 6.45am Thursday: Long period south groundswell is just starting to fill in this morning, currently wrapping in the waist to chest high range along the open beaches. Light NNW to NW winds are adding a bit of bump and cross-shore texture to it, but it's well worth a surf as the tide runs in to an 8.00am high.

    Rest of the Day: Long period south swell continues to fill in, so expect larger sets materialising in the overhead range as the day progresses. Early NNW winds are set to swing lighter WNW during the day, so it's well worth putting some time aside for a surf or three. Low is at 1.49pm and it fills back in to a 8.12pm high. Have a good one.
