  • Today's rating - Good

    Easterly swell eases though some sets occasionally around 2ft across the exposed beaches and wrapping at 1ft or less inside the points and bays. Some settled conditions through the morning before winds due to swing back SE later on. WIND: Early light SW 5 to 10 knots inshore, tending SSE to SE 5 to 15 knots during the day.

    ...As the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, everyone across the world is experiencing unprecedented, fast-changing and ever-confusing times – and that includes us surfers and general ocean lovers across Australia’s coasts. But one thing we can be certain of is that social distancing and self isolating is needed in order to beat the coronavirus. And the sooner and more completely we all do that, the sooner we can get back to what we love.
