  • Today's rating - Good

    Straighter East to ENE windswell sees consistent surf ranging from 2 to 3ft+ across the more exposed open beaches, tending smaller elsewhere. There's some additional, short range NE windswell adding into the mix this arvo, but it's well worth making the most of early lighter NW to NNW winds inshore to 10 knots, before they turn North to NE and freshening 10 to 20 knots during the day.

    ...Many beaches remain closed for the foreseeable future so be sure to check in with your local lifeguards before venturing out.
