  • Ballina Regional Surf Report: 6.50am Monday, 18th January:  There's a small south swell in the water, running at a fairly consistent chest to head-high, with less frequent overhead sets materialising at North Wall if you're patient. It's wrapping at lower levels along the open beaches and winds are light and variable, making for mostly clean, still slightly textured conditions in the wake of light overnight northerlies. We're also just coming off low tide, and it will run in to a 12.55pm high. 

    Rest of the Day Outlook:  Expect south swell to keep pulsing at similar levels throughout the day as winds gradually come around to the north/ northeast at 10-15 knots, lending the focus to northern corners for clean conditions all day. The tide runs back out to a 7.20pm low. Have a great day.
