The early morning haze of a warm and sticky morning is mixing with low level cloud on blue, while sheet glass surf is washing ashore, those waves almost catching each other up.
There’s a good couple of feet of surf, three on the sets, shimmering as they line up all close together, in a hurry to get to the beach and break.
The tide is wrong, too high for Booby’s, too low for Constantine, a bit mixed up on the Reef.
Somewhere should be good right now, better than here anyway. But give it an hour or two and it should be fun here too!
A pleasant Summer surf session to enjoin this rapidly warming water.
It looks like we might miss the bright and hot sunshine that others are enjoying but that might yet happen here too. But it is warm and coast and there are waves to ride, so it’s all good!

Harlyn (1*):  Flat to 1 ft

It is pretty tiny around here this morning again.
Barely a foot of weak looking but glassy and gentle surf is washing around the headland and swinging into the bay.
I guess that it is rideable, just. Knee high and snappy little glass rollers are slapping on the sand maybe getting a fraction bigger later but still way smaller than the other side.
And that’s the place to head for for a surf today!
But it could be a wonderful place to launch a paddle board!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  16:12  (1.1m)            High Tide:  09:47  (7.1m)

Surf Forecast for Friday 18th July 2014

Light winds, a small swell, warm air and warming water!
A thick and heavy day might be waiting, maybe quite oppressive in town with those high temperatures triggering some heavy downpours. Out here on the beaches it is always fresher and that bit more comfortable. And in the sea it is even more comfortable again!
We should be enjoying some small summer surf conditions, hip high gliders with a bump to them as sea breezes kick in for the afternoon.
Watch out for thunderstorms!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

It looks like we are in or a bit of a scorcher as the weekend approaches!
Forecasts are showing sky high temperatures over the next few days but with maybe not such clear or clean weather.
We should get some surf though. Nothing special but very surfable, especially for Summer.
As the week winds down we should continue to enjoy that two to three feet and crumbly little, close together swell. That should last through the weekend, being more attractive than it might normally be because of the warmth and those light winds.
The sun is likely to release its full brightness over the weekend too making for a very Summery kind of surf!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
