QUEENSLAND

SUNSHINE COAST With a bit more East swell it got a bit uneven and held in the 2 foot range with South West winds early in the day. The best quality waves were found early with the offshore SW winds in the South protected stretches early, on with the incoming tide

GOLD COAST Small and clean swell from the E in the 1-2ft range and light SSW winds early, with a swing to onshore ESE later Best options were finding a bank early on the rising tide with points working better later when the tide drops and the wind swings. The Final round of the Queensland Junior State Titles was held ad Dbah with the kids ripping.

NEW SOUTH WALES

NORTHERN NSW The weekend brought small and very clean conditions with 1-2ft inconsistent waves on the sets and light WSW wind at most beaches. Mornings were the most consistent and the pick was at the South swell magnets. There have been multiple Great White sightings over the past few days at the Ballina Shire and Byron Bay beaches.

MID NORTH NSW COAST Not much to report wave wise today. Wind early is light and NW with the northern corners and open beaches having the cleaner conditions. Swell is small and SE. Wind will swing NE late morning leaving the northern corners with the cleaner conditions. Micro grommet and beginners will enjoy the small conditions

NEWCASTLE An ESE swell was dropping in 1-2ft waves 8 seconds most of the weekend with light WNW. Small clean right throughout the weekend with South facing beaches the pick with winds will swinging to the North early on Sunday morning. There was a slight improvement later in the morning after the high tide.

SYDNEY NORTHERN BEACHES Waves only offering 1-2 ft from the South at 12 sec, with light winds S-ESE-NE. Same conditions as yesterday with not a lot going on around, only a foot, 2 max. If Mornings were the pick at south facing beaches, with some pretty spectacular conditions all weekend. 

SYDNEY SOUTH The South swell brought small conditions all weekend, only in the 1 up to 2ft range on the sets. Conditions were clean early with the winds light NNW early. Best waves and size in the morning before onshore kicked in. The North end of Bondi had a touch more size with the South swell.

ILLAWARRA The swell continued to drop over the weekend and got down to 2 ft of ENE swell with some bigger sets. Most beaches were smooth early with the wind light from the W that swung NE later in the day. The NE wind saw the North end of beaches and the South facing beaches the best picks for what quality was available.

VICTORIA

MORNINGTON PENINSULA A weekend of good clean offshore waves in the 3-4+ft range on the back. The swell was super straight, but enjoyable on the right banks! The wind was offshore all weekend.

SURFCOAST Good conditions all weekend with light N winds and a clean 2-3ft swell wrapping up the coast. It looked fun and there'll was waves at most spots on Sunday. The reefs had a little ripple and bump on the face however the open beach breaks had the cleanest waves.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

MID COAST NNE winds were up around 15 knots on the Mid Coast early, with a bit of added bump. Surf picked up slightly from Saturday on the reefs, but the wind and dropping tides didn’t help the size. The beachies had small waves through low tide mid morning, and the reefs saw a small pulse on the incoming tide.

SOUTH COAST Conditions stayed clean on the South Coast over the weekend with offshore NNE winds around 10-15 knots. Surf was around 1 – 2 foot at Middleton with occasional bigger sets down toward Cliffs and Goolwa. Waits and Parson's were better options for short boarders at 2 – 3ft.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA

SOUTH WEST Winds settled into a SSW'ly direction and coupled with an easing WSW swell. The conditions were messy 8-10ft+ across exposed reefs and bombies. Protected bays and points were the pick with some semi clean options. SSW winds eased throughout the day. Good conditions for the South West Bodyboard Club round 5.

PERTH CITY The swell came up solid on Saturday afternoon and eased off a bit on Saturday night under light variable winds early. The swell was quite chunky and raw with sets in the 3ft+ range from Scarbs to Trigg. Was definitely worth a paddle with light winds. Rotto swell buoy showed a WSW swell to 3.8m at 13 seconds that eased over Sunday.

North of Perth in Geraldton the Batavia Coast SUP Surf & Race was wrapped up with new champions in 2-3 foot swell and some great sections for the SUP surfers.
