  • Today's rating - Good

    Directional South swell continues to produce wide ranging surf-heights across the region, holding potential for solid 4 to 6ft sets at the more south facing breaks across Newcastle and Hunter coasts early, easing during the morning ahead of a renewed pulse this afternoon. Expect slower3 to 4ft sets along mid-northern open breaks with size depending on exposure. Winds are WSW 10 to 15 knots tending SW during the afternoon.
