The inside of Farewell Spit probably sees more whale strandings than anywhere else in the world. Volunteers keep a pod of 80 pilot whales from overheating on a hot summer day. Wet sheets help protect from the sun and moats are dug around each whale and filled with cool water. On this occasion, most of the whales survived.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
