  • Today's rating - Good

    A combination of renewed Easterly windswell and longer period S groundswell holds better potential for 2 to 3ft sets along open beaches today - as usual grading smaller along the points and inside the bays. Early light East to light WSW to SSW winds at 5 to 10 knots see good conditions prior to aSSE to ESE shift at 5 to 15 knots in the arvo.
