Alex Headland Surf Report


Outlook Info


Not a patch on yesterday as leftover South swell combines with rising SSE windswell under strong onshore SSE winds throughout the day; starting out around 1 to 2ft across south facing breaks, picking up to a junky 2ft+ at the magnets later on. Expect smaller surf elsewhere with size depending on exposure. An early SSW change at 15 to 20 knots, will quickly shift South to SSE 15 to 25 knots during the morning, then SE in the arvo.

    Less than a metre of SSE swell with waves in the 1ft+ range along the open beaches with the odd larger set wave with the incoming morning tide. Not much action on the points, with the open beach stretches the go with a high volume board. Surf conditions will be best early with light WNW to WSW winds at 5 to 10 knots, - and it's worth making the most of it before they swing North to NNE 10 to 20 knots in the afternoon. Enjoy your day in the waves. Spinksy
