  • Today's rating - Good

    A continued run of directional south swell sees small sets up to 2ft at the more exposed spots, wrapping at more like 1 to 2ft along open beaches and tiny to flat inside the points. Winds are Westerly, tending WSW to SW 5 to 15 knots during the morning, then turning SSW to SSE during the afternoon.
