Dangerous sea conditions to hit South Coast on Monday afternoon

Skippers, surfers and rock anglers have been warned of dangerous surf conditions forecast to hit the southern NSW coast from Monday afternoon and extend north to Seal Rocks on Tuesday.

The Bureau of Meteorology forecast is for dangerous conditions stemming from a moderate but high energy south/south westerly swell.

The swell is expected to affect mainly southerly facing beaches and exposed headlands.

Skippers and owners of small boats should be on high alert and are encouraged to be aware of the conditions before considering crossing a coastal bar or heading offshore.

Every skipper is responsible for the safety of their vessel and the passengers on board.

Are properly prepared to head out?

  • Ensure the boat and its equipment is suitable for the conditions
  • Log on/off with a Marine Rescue NSW marine radio base for every trip offshore
  •  Wear a lifejacket.
