A long period west swell. There was too much cross-current until about 2 hours after low water with a big risk of getting washed up on the rocks. Around mid-tide was better. Long lefts.

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.
