Updated: Fri 19 December 2:12pm Surf: sloppy 3ft S Winds: Fresh SSE Weather: fine Rating: 2/10

Afternoon report: The east swell has backed off to 2-3ft or so and now the southerly wind has kicked up 3ft of southerly windswell. No good with a fresh S/SE wind. Instead check out ASMF playing Harbord Diggers tonight at 8pm, and then Club Palm Beach tomorrow at 8pm. You can get tickets to both shows here: http://swllnt.com/1CPMWj2

Fri 19 December 6:26am: peaky 3-4ft E, Fresh S, cool 4/10

Shame about the winds as there's a good East swell in the water. The early high tide is swallowing up some of the energy but set waves are 3ft to almost 4ft at exposed spots, with long breaks between 'em due to the distant source. However these gusty south relies are creating choppy conditions at open stretches so southern corners are your only real option for now. 

Fri 19 December 5:50am: inconsistent 3-4ft ESE, Moderate S, partly cloudy 4/10

Dawn Report: Head to breaks that like moderate southerly winds to get the better conditions this morning, or tuck into a southern corner to get some protection. The waves are running at 3-4ft from the ESE, but keep in mind the sets are fairly inconsistent, so some waits are in store. Check back around 8am for Ben's photo report.
