Heading for a hot couple of days with a predicted high of 29C today and tomorrow. Down at the beach the swell was coming from the SSE at 1.7 m and a typical period of 11 seconds. This was translating into waist to chest high sets at the point and chest to head high bombs along the beach. But, once again, the longer period means a very high percentage of those sets are shutting down. Tide is coming into a 1.6 m high at 1115. Low hits at 1730. Water temp is on 19C.
