  • Today's rating - Average

    A slight increase in short-range NE windswell sees weak and disorganised 1 to 2ft surf across exposed areas, with scope for a bit more size later this afternoon/ evening. Winds are NNE 15 to 20 knots early, tending North and easing during the day, before freshening again in the afternoon.

    ...As the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, everyone across the world is experiencing unprecedented, fast-changing and ever-confusing times – and that includes us surfers and general ocean lovers across Australia’s coasts. But one thing we can be certain of is that social distancing and self isolating is needed in order to beat the coronavirus. And the sooner and more completely we all do that, the sooner we can get back to what we love.
