Wind to whip up Illawarra coastal risk

Surfers hoping to take advantage of big swells on Friday and Saturday, like this stand-up paddle boarder at Barrack Heights on Thursday, should do so with caution.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast large and powerful surf conditions with seas up to three metres, while a strong wind warning is also in place for the Illawarra coast on Friday.

Anyone thinking of heading out on a boat or going rock fishing should also be wary.
