    Sydney regional surf report, 6.50 am Friday, 5th March: You'll have to be quick if you want to beat a southerly change due any moment. Yesterday's south swell has dropped right back to a slower waist to shoulder high or so, with occasional larger head-high sets at the more south-facing spots. Light SW winds are seeing clean conditions for the time being and the tide is already most of the way out, dropping to an 8.00 am low - so it's a bit straight, but there's some fun waves to be had before the change shuts it down.

    Rest of the Day Outlook: A fresh southerly change will quickly erode the early morning quality, while leading in a steady building trend in new south swell as conditions deteriorate throughout the afternoon. The tide runs in to a 2.00 pm high and drops out to a 7.57 pm low. Have a great day.
