Constantine (2*): 2 feet
It’s a brighter morning than the last few but it is still a little grey around the edges, just a little chilly for mid August.
But there’s a lot of blue clearing into that sky and the breeze is only light and so it ain’t all that bad.
The surf is a little lazy looking, a couple of feet of warpy glass hesitantly shuffling into the bay and breaking pretty much wherever it wants. This breeze is probably northerly right now which is sideshore here and so not that great for shaping any surf. But it is forecast to slip to the north east which will be more offshore and so much better for wave shaping.
The tide is halfway out on the drop and so it’s not looking its best but give it a few hours and it should improve.
Put that all together and we should be seeing some pleasant little fun surf through the day, probably getting better through early afternoon!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s all but flat around here on this still and silvery morning.
There’s almost a foot of quite glassy little waves slapping ashore here and there. It is all a little flat and all a little ‘bitty’ with no real shape to it right now but then the tide is dropping out and so it might just improve when that tide turns.
Saying that, the other side is looking bigger and better and should improve with the tide as well.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:08 (2.0m) High Tide: 16:10 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 12th August 2015
It’s all looking bright and sunny for today but the surf is likely to be only small, a foot or two at the best and that at our main swell focussing spots.
The wind is set to be light and offshore though and so we might see some longboardable little peelers here and there.
It could be one of those oh so rare day this summer when it’s a bright and sunny and lazy kind of beach day!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
To start the week south westerly winds are likely to be blowing three feet or so of swell from that low pressure that passed to the north west of us, a lumpy little swell that has travelled a bit but is not that solid.
The wet and dreary weather of Monday morning should be replaced by much better conditions as the week unfolds, the wind just about slipping offshore through Tuesday and into Wednesday, a north easterly breeze carrying some chillier and damper weather with it.
The surf should be cleaner as a result but only small and getting smaller, maybe going flat through the middle of the week. Although it is probably going to be one of those periods when there will be little waves for moments as the tide reaches those shallow banks only to go flat a short while later as a deeper channel is exposed.
It is likely to be the end of the week before we see any brighter weather and even longer before we see any proper surf.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
