Small low pressure system out in the Tasman providing a good swell for the beginning of the week. The best conditions will be around the mid to high tides during the morning, as conditions tend to close out on the low tide. Swell from the south-east to south at 1.5 to 2m. Clean waves early with tide suiting the reefs and outside banks. First up try South Bar, Cliff and Pogos. Merewether and Flatrock on high. Burwood, Dudley and Catho to the south. One Mile up at Port Stephens. Water temperature 17C. - Dave Anderson
