  • Today's rating - Good

    Combined SE windswell and fading, longer range E swell continue to range from 2 to 3ft exposed beaches, while grading smaller along the points and inside the bays. Conditions should be much improved under early light SW to SSW inshore, before they turn SE to ESE at 10 to 15 knots.
