    Ballina Regional Surf Report: 7.15 am Wednesday, 3rd March: We're greeted with a cool, grey autumn morning and junky, onshore surf  comprised of a mix of underlying ESE swell and new, short-period SSE windswell in the chest to head-high plus range. It's not easy on the eye beneath fresh ESE winds around 10 to 20 knots, so you'd be forgiven for sleeping in. We're just coming off an early 6.00 am low tide so conditions may improve a bit as it fills in to a midday high, but don't hold your breath. 

    Rest of the Day Outlook: Long range ESE swell continues to pulse at low-levels as a new round of south swell gradually muscles up during the day, offering up more size and power at North Wall this arvo, but fresh onshore ESE to SE winds at 10-20 knots will leave little to be desired across the exposed beaches, so heading for a sheltered point or bay will be your best bet all day long. Have a great day.
