  • Today's rating - Average

    Faded E swell hangs in at a slower 2 to 3ft exposed areas, but it's likely to be getting inconsistent in the upper range and will be a notch or two smaller along the points and bays. A resumption of a northerly wind-regime doesn't bode well for surface conditions so get in early for the best of it. Early NNW to NW winds turn NNE around 10 to 20 knots during the afternoon.
