Constantine (3*): 3 feet plus and Glassy
at 6.35 a.m.
Another fabulously beautiful morning is embracing us again with that wonderful pale blue sky stretching from one horizon to the other, the sunburst dawn lighting up a swell only slightly smaller than yesterday”s.
The breeze is light, a gentle offshore drift meeting those deep blue walls of watery glass head on.
The surf is a bit bumpy but that is just the tide, it’s only half an hour or so before high and so it’s all just a little deep out there right now. As the tide drops we can expect three feet or thereabouts of clean and sparkly, fun surf. And that should last all day long! We might see some light onshore breezes this afternoon, that is just the sea breeze effect from the warm sunshine on land, it will soon ease off again this evening for the post work gang!
So we can look forward to a bright and sunny day filled with clean and glassy surf! Where else would you want to be!
Harlyn (1*): 0 to 1 ft and glassy
It is pretty tiny around here again today, not quite flat but pretty close to it! Barely a foot of glassy lumps are only occasionally rolling shoreward at high tide.
It is a wonderful place to launch a Sup or Kayak for a cruise around the bays but the west facing surf breaks are the places to head for if you’re poking to surf today. And they are breaking really very nicely!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:37 (0.7m) High Tide: 19:29 (7.3m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 17th May 2014
We might just squeeze another day out of this high pressure and its gorgeous weather.
Saturday looks to be another bright day with only the lightest of breezes, the gentle offshore of the morning switching to a gentle onshore through the afternoon.
The surf will have dropped a little again but we should be enjoying clean, glassy and peeling one to two feet surf throughout the day, better in the morning and evening but fun all through.
Don’t forget the sunblock though!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
It has all been pretty fabulous for the back half of this week, hasn’t it!
As high pressure took control of the weather, there has been a little swell generating depression out there, spinning some quite small but immaculately shaped little waves our way for the last few days. Well, when I say ‘little’, it has been a half decent three feet and bigger at its peak.
These light offshore breezes and clear, bright skies are likely to hang around for another day or two and so it is all looking very pleasant as we go into the weekend with maybe smaller waves for Saturday but still clean and sparkling and fun!
The weather might just haze over a bit for Sunday but it should stay calm enough with only light breezes forecast. After that though those breezes are likely to swing more onshore for a day or two at our main surf breaks.
We’ll have to wait and see if any waves manage to get around to those cleaner, more sheltered breaks but before that we should be enjoying a period of fabulous weather and enjoyable surf! Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
