  • Today's rating - Good

    Cranking this morning as mid period Easterly swell holds around the 3 to 4ft mark along the most exposed open beaches, perhaps easing a notch later. There's also, in thereby, some small long-range S groundswell arriving at slower 2 to 4ft levels across Newcastle and Hunter coasts. Early WNW to NW winds see great conditions before they turn North 10 to 15 knots, then NE 10 to 20 knots in the arvo.
