  • Today's rating - Good

    Mid period S swell emerges as the dominant wave-train across the region today, holding potential for 1 to 2ft+ sets at the more exposed venues under early offshore winds - but it's hardly enough to push in along the points. Well worth making the most of it before winds come around to the north this afternoon.
