Updated: 2018-05-24 07:04:00 Surf: inconsistent 2-3ft SE Winds: Calm SSW Weather: mostly fine Rating: 4/10

There is the most swell on the coast that we have had in a couple of weeks, it is 2-3ft on the sets which are a little inconsistent but definitely the biggest size we have had recently. It is pretty clean with a slight ruffle on the surface as a left over from yesterdays winds with very light SSW blowing now. The wind is forecast to strengthen through the morning from the SE before easing again late. The tide is dropping to a 10.20am low with high at 4.45pm. Have a great day

Dawn report: Similar to the last couple of days we've got mostly small waves with the most action at swell magnets. There's inconsistent 2ft sets at open beaches, bigger at exposed spots. Check back for the updated photo report around 8am.
