Good swells to pick up at the weekend and run into the week

Surf Conditions

THERE will be no shortage of swell and rain this weekend and well into next week.

At the weekend a strong east swell will get into all locations with winds from the southeast.

The protected southern corners will be the pick of the places to surf.

Moving into next week the swell will swing more to the south with the protected southern corners still the best places to surf.

Winds will remain from the south with the best surf conditions being in the morning with winds more offshore.
