A grey and wet but calm, mild and cosy morning is snuggling around us this morning while the sky, land and sea are merging into a monochrome vista of greyness. There’s barely half a dozen shades of grey out there this morning, nowhere near the fifty of literature!
And, yes, the surf is flat.
The world’s largest infinity pool is stretching to the imagined horizon, somewhere out there in the murk and mist of that grey dullness.
Tiny ripples are peeling off the rocks at the back of the Reef at high tide but it’s not rideable.
There might just be a couple of longboard glideable ones shimmying through at Booby’s later, on this afternoon’s rising tide but that is more hope than anything!

No, it is completely flat here again today.
Barely a ripple is disturbing the rain-lashed but still smooth surface of the sea this morning!

Surf Forecast for Saturday 23rd April 2016

The smooth, offshore breeze conditions of the morning are soon going to be replaced by cold and bumpier conditions brought about by more north westerly winds showing themselves through midday.  Chillier, choppier but bright and sunny conditions will be with us by lunchtime!  But the surf is likely to be still tiny, at best!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

These small but clean surf conditions are likely to be with us right into the weekend, the weather a little gloomy as the week ends but brightening beautifully as the weekend kicks in.
Teeny, tiny but still squeaky clean waves are going to tempt us through Friday morning, with maybe glassier conditions spilling in by the afternoon.
A cold north easterly will be blowing offshore again by Saturday morning, blocking the foot or so of smooth and attractive looking but still tiny little surf from building too much.
A bright and cheerful day will be tempered by that cold wind again though. Beautiful in the lee of that wind, chilly when exposed to its northern bite.
The wind will probably settle to the north for Sunday, again that chilling and stinging coldness being dragged down to us from up there and making for some bumpier surf than we have seen for a while as well.
So, a pleasant weekend of bright but chilly weather with only small surf, staring out clean and inviting, gradually becoming a little bumpier and sloppier as we go along.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
