  • Today's rating - Average

    Fading Easterly swell hangs in at low-levels under early light winds, up to a slow 2ft across the most exposed beaches, more like 1 to 2ft at best elsewhere and verging on flat inside the points and bays. Early light WSW to SSW winds at 5 to 10 knots see clean conditions until they turn SSE to SE 10 to 15 knots during the day, ESE in the afternoon.

    ...As the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold, everyone across the world is experiencing unprecedented, fast-changing and ever-confusing times – and that includes us surfers and general ocean lovers across Australia’s coasts. But one thing we can be certain of is that social distancing and self isolating is needed in order to beat the coronavirus. And the sooner and more completely we all do that, the sooner we can get back to what we love.
