  • Today's rating - Good

    Inconsistent south swell under light winds early before a freshening southerly change creates an increase in localised wind swell. Ranging from 2 to 3ft at exposed south facing beaches, rising windblown 4ft+ sets later, grading smaller elsewhere. WIND: Early light W to NW before a potentially fresh southerly change within the 15 to 25 knots range.
