It is smaller today with the SSE swell in the 2-3ft range on the open beaches and light offshore SW early. The winds are forecast to be light and variable with an E sea breeze coming in later and the tide is high early, dropping to a low at 11.35am. Smaller fun waves again this morning on the dropping tide with claen conditions early, get out there before the winds go onshore.
The NSW lifesaving patrol season ended on Sunday 28 April, however the following beaches at Soldiers and Shelley Beach are still patrolled by council lifeguards 7 days a week until the end of May.
Please do not take any risks during the off-season period. No Flags = No Swim! The majority of beach patrols will again commence on the first day of the September School Holidays.
