At 6.30 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 foot
A fabulous morning is cheering us today as a milky blue sky stretches far and wide, the air breezless and still, the sea a rippling glass turquoise.
And there are waves!
Small, maybe still tiny but reeling and peeling, shimmering and curling, a foot, very occasionally two of exquisite little waves are pulsing shoreward.
It is incredible how the sight of a knee high and peeling, glassy little wave can excite after only a few days of flatness!
So, longboards or fat fish at the ready and dive in before it disappears!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
The sea is shimmering in the early morning light, layers of fine mist clinging to the shallows of a waveless bay.
It is beautiful here again this morning but there is still no surf to ride!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 07:58 (2.5m) High Tide: 13:59 (5.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 22nd April 2017
These settled and calm conditions are set to carry on into the weekend with only tiny but immaculately shaped little waves, if any, expected again today.
The breeze is expected to be from the north east today, still offshore but with that stinging chill to it still.
We are going to have to catch those tiny swells as they crest over ridges of shallow sand today, in between those sandbanks it will be too deep for those waves to break!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Tiny to flat, calm and settled conditions are going to take us through this weekend, the weather continuing to be superb but the waves deserting us completely.
We might just get the odd longboard glide on a tiny peak here and there, if you can catch that slow moving tide pulling the tiny swell lines onto a shallow sandbar but otherwise it is going to be smooth and glassy and calm.
It should be a great weekend to drag the SUP boards out to enjoy flopping around in the unusually mild waters of this Spring but there isn’t likely to be much surf around!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
