“North East Coast Daily Surf Report
 Updated: Fri Jul 25th, 8:17am
Surf: clean 3-5ft
Wind: light W
Weather: overcast
Dawn Patrol: The swell just won’t go away, it has kicked again this morning more from the east/northeast in direction. It is clean and about 3-5ft by the looks of it. There will be plenty of options for surf so you better pack the double layer wetsuit and hit the tubes, its going off ! The only trouble is, it is sooooo cold” (http://www.swellnet.com.au/loc_report.php?region_id=25&state_id=6)
