  • Today's rating - Good

    Large SSE swell wraps in, holding potential for solid 3 to 4ft sets across the more exposed beaches during the day, while opening up a wide range of 2 to 3ft surf along the majority of open beaches. Fresh SW to SSW winds favour the points and open stretches early, before winds turn S/SSE into the afternoon.
