At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (0*): Flat
The mist and haze of yet another gorgeous Autumn morning is slowly evaporating as the sun bursts over the far horizon, a water-coloured delight of a view left on display.
The surf is absolutely flat but the bay is still gorgeous this morning with Toby (Ray) paddling off to the headland in that early dawn mist. It’s a light ’n lazy beaut of a morning once again, it is just a bit of a shame that there are no waves to ride!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
That swirling mist of a golden dawn is blanketing the infinity pool smoothness of the sea again today. A fabulous scene of calm, with barely a ripple on the sea to move the sand.
It’s not the place to take a surfboard again today but it is still another fabulously beautiful morning unfolding here today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 16:08 (1.6m) High Tide: 09:39 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 4th October 2015
This should be the last day of flatness but it is also likely to be the last day of this fabulous weather which we have had to wait for, for so long!
The wind is likely to remain from the south east as the skies gradually cloud over, those sunny spells gradually easing into drizzle and eventually rain.
And all the time the surf is likely to remain frustratingly flat with those tiny little shadows of swell lines not quite turning into waves.
But Monday, well for surf (and weather!) Monday is likely to be an entirely different day!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It has been a beautiful week this last week of September, the sun shining, the breeze comfortably offshore along with some small but steady swell activity out in the atlantic.
Those waves are going to continue to be really small at best but gorgeously shaped as we go into the weekend, the size varying with the tide and those hopeful little pulses of swell.
So timing is going to make the difference between the possibility of getting a pleasant fun session or paddling frustratingly in search of those mini ghost waves.
Late afternoon or evening will probably continue to see the best conditions, just ahead of high tide. But even then it is likely to be still only tiny but with the breeze staying offshore and the sun continuing to shine, it should be worth dragging a longboard down for a mini-glide!
Saturday will see light and variable breezes while those tiny swell lines seek the shallows, the tide playing a big part in helping those tiny little waves to find somewhere to break. By Sunday the offshores should have returned, helping to groom those still small waves but bringing a change in the weather too!
Saying that, it might be worth keeping your eyes on it through Sunday afternoon, that little low that is down to the south west of us might just start to send some little waves our way sooner than the computer models are predicting.
Otherwise it continues to be that frustration of just picking the optimum times of least wind, shallowest tide and biggest swell pulse. If you get it right it could be fun!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
