A WOMAN was treated for a broken wrist and head laceration after she was knocked over by a large wave.

Paramedics were called to Jordan Esp about 1.25pm.
The 30-year-old woman was one of two people taken to Coffs Harbour Base Hospital.

South-easterly swells were predicted to have peaked between 2-3m.
