    Morning Report for Margaret River (Wed 645): A secondary boost in new SW swell fills in this morning and we see a rise in overhead surf now more consistent and larger conditions. The winds are light and tend from the ESE early, although the tide is dropping to a 11am low so shape is sectiony and walling up on the larger sets. Fair weather with the morning haze holding calm early then will burn off with sun and seabreeze turning S to SW later on.  

    Rest of the day Regional Outlook: Secondary new SW swell is kicking in with an expected rise through the day so building in overhead conditions. The wind will tend south with daytime heating midday and we can expect a seabreeze forming some texture later as the morning haze clears. Low tide through midmorning creating sections but maybe improving as we see a gradual fill of high tide through the day, going up gradually to 1120pm tonight.
