Updated: 2018-08-21 14:05:00 Surf: bumpy 4ft SW Winds: Moderate WSW Weather: showers Rating: 4/10

Afternoon report: The new swell is filling in and there are easy 4ft sets on the reefs, though conditions aren't perfect. Cross-onshore winds though clean enough for a paddle out across protected breaks.

2018-08-21 07:49:00: clean 3ft SW, Moderate WNW, cold 4/10

Another cold morning with an early high tide. Clean waves around 3ft tho' a little uneven and a bit of bump. Rubber up as it's cold. Possibly better options as the tide drops through the morning around the usual reefs and beaches.

2018-08-21 06:39:00: lumpy 3ft WSW, Moderate WNW, showers 4/10

Dawn report: The swell has increased from yesterday but it's low period, peaky/lumpy and raw energy with a bit of size to head-high on the sets, but not the best quality. So the bottom line is that there are waves, but keep your expectations low and keep an eye on for a stronger kick in swell through the day. Tune back in for the updated photo report around 8am.
