  1. Clean but only knee to waist high here on the spring tide. Bigger up the coast north, but as usual more wind-afffected. Should build a bit more but on a falling tide.

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.
