A cracker of a morning to find yourself in the south west today. With an almost unprecedented 9/10 forecast this morning, hopes were high for something pretty good. And it most certainly was. The off-shore was strong early, but did weaken over the course of the morning. The peak period was from about 10am to 12 noon. It turned a bit northerly later on but the entire morning was pretty good. Definitely for experienced surfers only this morning as the average set was a sold eight foot, with quite a few getting up into the ten to twelve foot range. Solid surf and not for the inexperienced. Pick of the spots early were the more sheltered point breaks, but as the wind died down a bit the outer reef breaks closer to Margaret River really began to turn it on. Could this swell have saved the #MargiesPro? One wonders. Our pic of the day features on Facebook at 5pm, and a few will end up on insta @surfingmr as well. Stay safe out there and surf breaks that suit your ability level. We don't need any more bad news coming from the water.
