Afternoon report: The surf is still clean and looking better on the other side of the tide this afternoon. Offshore winds and 4-5ft sets on the back beaches, smaller but fun in protected spots as well.

A bit more accessible this morning with the south swell dropping back quite a bit leaving fun waves across open beaches and points, while the back beaches are seeing the most size with sets hanging in there at 4-5ft. Low tide is good at some breaks but not great at others, so give it some time.

Dawn report: Brrrr, it's bloody cold out there this morning so suit up with a bit of extra rubber. Looking at the surf and it's eased back from yesterday afternoon with our initial pulse of south energy on the way out. The back beaches and magnets are back to the 4-5ft range and still a little raw at some breaks. All other beaches are much smaller but nice and clean with this offshore wind. Tune back in for the updated photo report around 8am.
