2024-05-20 07:53:00: clean 3ft SSE, Light SSW, fine & sunny 5/10

We have a great looking morning along the Coast and fun waves to go with the really nice clean conditions. The swell is from the SSE so as usual with this there is a lot of variation in size. The magnets and N end will be 3ft to possibly pushing some 4ft sets while the beaches get smaller the more S you go with the S points struggling for anything much at all more than 0.5-1ft. The earlier moderate winds have eased back to a little lighter from SSW with moderate SSW/S winds forecast for the day. The tide is dropping from an earlier high at 545am to a midday low rising to a 630pm late high. There are plenty of fun waves around which are nice and clean with this wind. For the best options head to the magnets and N end of the coast for more size. Enjoy your day
