It’s a bright enough start to this morning, hazier than yesterday but bright and mild and looking promising.
There is a light breeze from the north west and you can feel the chill in it. That is putting a little crumbly surface on the otherwise fairly smooth sea.
And there’s a foot or so of swell washing over the Reef at hight tide, not exactly exciting but showing more than the last few days.
With a bit of timing you could just catch real fun longboard session today, a knee to hip high glide on a bright and cheerful enough day!
And it should maybe get better through this afternoon.

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

No, it’s as flat as flat can be around here this morning, there’s a ruffle on the water surface but otherwise it’s as smooth as can be.  A great place to launch a SUP again or maybe get the rod & line out and paddle the Kayak out for a relaxing spot of fishing but you aren’t king to get a surf here today!

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  12:16  (1.0m)                  High Tide:  18:10  (7.0m)

Surf Forecast for Thursday 29th May 2014

We should be seeing a foot or two of surf today, a clean and organised, well travelled little foot or two of swell, maybe ruffled a bit from that north westerly breeze but fun enough.
And it should be a bright enough day too, or maybe starting off that way anyway.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see a half decent couple of feet plus of shortboardable surf by late afternoon on the incoming tide but it could well be a different day by then as far as the weather is concerned!

Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

We are lucky here in that it rarely goes that flat for very long but those little waves had almost completely disappeared for the last few days. The guys were getting in but you had to time it just right, catching those tiny waves as they tripped up onto the the shallow sandbanks, before going flat again in the deeper troughs between those banks.
And it’s not going to be great for surf just yet,either there will be some slightly bigger and just about rideable stuff coming through for midweek, with a foot or two to build on by Wednesday but there’s not likely to be much more than that.
And that wind is likely to drift in onshore just as the weather brightens!
So a foot or two of fairly crumbly, maybe sloppy surf is the most that we can expect for a few days yet but at least some of that should be in bright and cheerful sunshine. And the water temperature is warming up rapidly so it’s not that much of a chore to go glide a few of those little waves!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
