  • Today's rating - Good

    Background south swell mixes with slight NE windswell, most likely 1 to 2ft at best across the more exposed beaches this morning and tinier elsewhere. There's scope for a minor increase in directional south swell showing later this afternoon, probably confined to true south-facing stretches. Early WSW to SW winds tend SSW in the afternoon.
