Afternoon report: The swell has come up as forecast along with the wind and there's nothing too appealing out there. Maybe The Point if you're desperate, otherwise, let it go today and aim for a paddle on the weekend. ** The copying and creating of surfboard shapes by machines is explored in this latest article:

Fri 22 May 7:18am: clean 1-2ft S, Fresh WSW, rain 2/10

Today's photos are not of good quality but give you and idea of what's happening here at the beach. Dull, windy and heavy passing rain cells. The winds are gusting from the WSW at the moment but will most likely turn more onshore later. Only a slight increase in swell size with waves on the north ends around the 2ft mark and the south ends a little smaller. This should change as winds turn more onshore there will be an increase in wave size but a decrease in surface conditions. Keep an eye on the surf cams for a chance of a protected corner later in th day.

Fri 22 May 6:30am: clean 2ft S, Moderate WSW, cool and cloudy 3/10

Dawn report: A small south swell to greet the morning, and light W/SW winds providing clean conditions. It's very small at the southern end with the biggest waves in the north, however strong onshores are expected at some point so the best of it is probably right now. Tune back in for the updated photo report around 8am.
