Updated: 2018-04-22 08:05:00 Surf: bumpy 2-3ft S Winds: Fresh S Weather: rain Rating: 3/10

We've had 20mm of rain (and counting) at the Cape since 5am, and winds have recently gone around to the south. So, exposed beaches are a write off and the protected points are small (and wet). There ain't a lot to get excited about as there's only a small level of average south swell in the water, but you'll get wet if you're super keen. I'm not!

2018-04-22 05:51:00: peaky 2ft SE, Fresh SW, showers 3/10

Dawn Report: There's a fair whack of rain pushing through the coast this morning, but surf wise there's not much to worry about. We've got fresh SW winds and small leftover swells in the 2ft range at south facing beaches, with smaller surf elsewhere. We are expecting an increase throughout the day, but for now wave quality isn't particularly high. Tune in to the updated photo report around 8am.
