Groms carve up their third competition

Surf conditions

WE ARE going to have a bit of everything this week for surfers on the Coffs Coast.

It's a real spring pattern with winds moving around a fair bit.

Saturday will have a small south swell with light winds and best places to surf will be the open beaches.

On Sunday, the swell will pick up from the south with winds in the south too making the southern corners the pick.

Moving into next week, the swell will hang around but winds will turn to the north early in the week before going back to the south.

There will be quality waves everyday but you may have to change locations each day to suit the conditions.
