  • Today's rating - Good

    We have another gradual increase in long-period South groundswell on the cards today. Expect slow 2 to 4ft sets south facing beaches, holding this size into during the afternoon; albeit inconsistent in the upper range. Otherwise expect smaller 2 to 3ft waves elsewhere with size depending on exposure. Early WNW to NW winds at 5 to 10 knots, tend North, NNE seabreezes around 10 knots in the afternoon.
