Long range forecast: The swell will build through to Monday night, before easing slightly on Tuesday then continuing to increase through to Friday (6ft+ sets expected by then). Offshores are set to return from tomorrow through to Tuesday night, so there will be waves to be had. Southerlies are forecast for Wednesday morning through to Friday.
Small clean waves early with 2ft of swell, but the wind will angle more onshore fairly soon.
Onshore conditions with 2ft of swell from the SSW - SW winds are forecast all day.
