  • Today's rating - Average

    A combination of fading SE swell and mid-period Southerly swell maintains small surf, ranging from 2 to 3ft along exposed beaches, more like 1 to 2ft elsewhere with size depending on exposure. Early WSW winds at 5 to 15 knots see good conditions and they'll stay pretty good as they fade to light and variable, before turning back to the west later.

Morning of the Earth Surfboards

For some the modern short board will never make sense. To me there are elements of the past that are still viable today, when blended with all we have learnt in the past.
