A small long period swell that is still overhead on the sets. No wind between dawn and noon and it's already warm at 8am. Kahurangi lighthouse in the distance.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
