Updated: 2018-04-24 08:14:00 Surf: lumpy 3-4ft SSE Winds: Moderate WSW Weather: partly cloudy Rating: 4/10

A bit of swell pushing up the coast out of the south and there are waves at most breaks but it's most organised in semi-protected spots and on the points. A little raw across open stretches, but with lots of random peaks splitting up the incoming waves.

2018-04-24 06:12:00: peaky 3-4ft SSE, Moderate W, partly cloudy 4/10

Dawn report: Not ideal out there this morning with a peaky and mixed up ocean across open beaches. Cleaner on the points but smaller. Check back for the updated photo report around 8am.
