  • Today's rating - Good

    Residual SSE swell slowly fades. wrapping up to 1 to 2ft along exposed breaks, otherwise tiny to near-flat along open beaches and inside the points and bays. Early WSW to SW winds at 5 to 15 knots see good quality on offer before they turn south during the day, then SE/ESE and easing in the afternoon.
