  • Today's rating - Average

    Updated 9.00am: Still large ENE groundswell radiating from TC Oma is combining with rising SSE swell under strong SSE winds. Exposed beaches are no-go zones at a stormy, 5 to 7ft+, and it's set to pick up towards 6 to 8ft+ as the day progresses and probably up to an out-of-control 8 to 10ft or more this arvo. Initially expect waves wrapping anywhere 3 to 6ft into the points and bays but rising into the afternoon. Winds are Southerly, SSE 25 to 35 knots, increasing to 30 to 40 knots.
