  • Today's rating - Average

    SE swell shows good size, up to 2 to near 3ft on exposed beaches this morning, while wrapping at more like 1 to 2ft+ or so along open beaches. Early inshore SW to SSW winds at 5 to 10 knots see the best of conditions, before they turn SSE to SE 10 to 15 knots in the morning, then ESE in the afternoon.

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