  • Today's rating - Average

    Northerly winds render the majority of open breaks a write-off today so it's worth getting in early. Short range NE windswell picks up from a junky 1 to 2ft+ exposed open breaks, to a stronger 2 to 3ft this afternoon. Early NNW winds at 10 to 15 knots inshore see the best of it, before they turn Northerly, NNE 15 to 25 knots, up to 20 to 30 knots in the afternoon.
