Strong SW wind has been blowing all night which leaves the southern headlands with the cleanest conditions for a surf. Swell is still out of the south and most of the swell is just passing by the main breaks around town. The more exposed southern headlands do have waves while the open beaches are attracting all the swell but conditions are poor on these beaches. For lessons and equipment hire phone Port Macquarie Surf School 6584 7733.
Peter Hudson and his sons Grant & Wayne have been surfing the waves around Pt. Macquarie all their lives. Peter is a multiple Australian Title holder in both short and longboards and Grant and Wayne have both competed on the WQS international tour. When they’re not out surfing, they’ll be coaching at their Pt. Macquarie Surf School.
