  • Today's rating - Average

    Expect stronger Easterly tradewind swell arriving throughout the day, up around 3 to 4ft at the more exposed breaks and more like 2 to 3ft+ inside the points and bays with size depending on exposure. Sheltered orthern corners will be the pick as early Northerly, NNW winds at 10 to 15 knots, tend NNE 15 to 20 knots in the afternoon.
