  • Today's rating - Good

    Better organised South swell slowly eases throughout the day, initially holding around 2ft at the more exposed breaks, but slowly fading as the day progresses. Early NW to NNW winds at 5 to 10 knots, tending Northerly 10 to 15 knots, then NNE and freshening later.

Morning of the Earth Surfboards

For some the modern short board will never make sense. To me there are elements of the past that are still viable today, when blended with all we have learnt in the past.
