  • Today's rating - Good

    A strong pulse of directional south swell is inbound this morning; undersized around 2 to 3ft+ early, picking up steeply mid morning; favouring Newcastle and Hunter coasts in the 3 to 5ft range and showing up north of Foster this arvo. Early WNW winds turn WSW in the morning, before they turn S to SSE during the afternoon.
