  • Today's rating - Average

    Short range NE windswell rapidly fades with the arrival of a Southerly change this morning, initially still ranging from 1 to 2ft across exposed breaks, but rapidly dwindling throughout the day. Early NW to WNW winds at 15 to 25 knots see a brief window of clean conditions ahead of a Southerly, SSE change 15 to 20 knots in the morning, tending SE to ESE and easing in the afternoon.
