  • Today's rating - Average

    Mid-period southerly swell wraps in at about 1 to 2ft at the most exposed breaks, more like 1ft+ elsewhere with size depending on exposure, easing later. Early SW to SSW winds at 5 to 10 knots makes for good conditions, before winds swing SSE to SE 10 to 15 knots in the arvo.
