PHOTOS: Waves for the week ahead

The Cronulla beaches wont be bragging about this week's wave quality but at least we have had some swell and decent conditions to surf in.

The banks are still poor with a big gutter running of the beach with only North Cronulla surfable, pushing everyone down onto a couple of average rip bowls.

Yesterday the surf was head high on the sets with clean winds until the afternoon but it still didn't set the world on fire-the best time to surf is the incoming tide as the rips start to work.

Today its dropped a bit but the winds are favorable and should be blowing nor-west all day so if you can pick a time you might catch a couple of nice ones.

The bad news is its going to drop to a 2ft low on Friday before a slight increase Saturday morning when a sou- west change gives it another kick pushing it back to the 4-6 ft mark in the late afternoon.

Sunday morning looks good with clean offshores and shoulder high waves for the start of a new week.

Today's pics are from an average afternoon session at North Cronulla on Monday.
