  • Today's rating - Average

    A long-range ESE groundswell linked to ex-TC Tino underpins localised NE windchop, producing disjointed 2ft to occasional 3ft range along exposed beaches, otherwise smaller elsewhere with size depending on exposure. Early lighter NNW winds at 10 to 15 knots see fair quality inside sheltered northern corners, but it'll deteriorate as they swing North to NNE up to 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon.
