A beautiful morning on the beach with fun, little waves on offer. The points have some great waves up to around 3ft on the sets and even though it’s a little disjointed it looks super fun. The open beaches will still be offering up some great little peaks even as the wind starts to blow a bit more from the ENE but get out there before it picks up some more. Enjoy your day.

2018-10-20 04:36:00: clean 3-4ft ESE, Light and variable SW, partly cloudy 5/10

Dawn Report: The waves are nice and clean this morning with light offshore winds, and we've got a clean groundswell out of the E/SE, somewhere between 3ft and 3-4ft. The bank situation is all weird though thanks to last weekend's large swell, with outer bars breaking up the swell into smaller peaks across most breaks, and a weird sand distribution across the points making for a confused lineup. However, with winds expected to swing to the NE, you're best to surf sooner rather than later. Sniff around for an inside shorey on the early high tide before it drains out too much. Tune in to the updated photo report around 8am.
