At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 foot.
The sea is a deep turquoise this morning, the bright but cloud covered sky reflecting and glinting off the faces of some very small waves that are trickling through.
There’s a foot or two of immaculately shaped little waves peeling across the Reef, the breeze a gentle south easterly but strengthening quite quickly.
With the tide too high right now, it is difficult to gauge how much swell is actually getting through but what you can tell is that if the wind continues to strengthen then it will block those little waves even more.
Saying that, as long as that wind doesn’t blow too strongly then we should still be able to enjoy some small but crisp and clean gliders as they peel across the sand.
We have been running a series of POP-UP SALES over the last couple of weekends and they have been really popular but, of course, we can’t keep that going forever!
Or can we!?
This weekend we have grouped a bunch of Xcel winter wetsuits along with a bunch of O’Neill wintersuits and are offering them at HALF-PRICE!!
And ALL of our other suits (Patagonia, Xcel (Celliant), Vissla and O’Neill) are on SALE at 30% OFF!!
With 20% to 30% OFF ALL clothing (including Patagonia, Reef and Vissla Jackets, tops and Tees) and ALL Footwear at HALF-PRICE, maybe you should make a point of dropping in on us this weekend from 10.30 a.m till 4pm Saturday and Sunday ONLY!! The surf should be fun and, if you’re lucky, we might even put the kettle on!
Harlyn (0*): Flat.
The bay here is as flat as flat can be this morning.
A mirror like turquoise infinity pool of smoothness but with not a wave to be seen!
There’s a little wave on the other side of the headland which should be fun as long as the wind doesn’t blow up too strongly!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:48 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:40 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 27th February 2016
Offshore winds are set to blow through the weekend, a mainly easterly but twitching between north easterly and south easterly wind that might block some of the otherwise more solid swell.
If the wind eases then we should be enjoying a decent couple to three feet of offshore groomed fun waves but if it does blow hard then we’ll be lucky to get much more than hip-high to a medium sized person. We should have waves at our favourite breaks though and it should be fun!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Those pleasant and cheery conditions that we have been enjoying through the week are likely to give way to something a little more blustery and damper and colder through Friday. The wind will still be offshore, now from the south east, a perfect direction to shape those waves at our better breaks to perfection. But it might just blow a little too strongly, effectively blocking a lot of swell and sapping its energy before it reaches us.
There should still be some attractive looking and wind-hollowed little waves peeling in but it is probably going to be small, a foot or two at best.
The wind is likely to stay offshore through the weekend, becoming lighter and more easterly by Saturday and so maybe allowing a little more swell to reach us. Combine that with some bright and cheery sunshine later though and suddenly it all becomes very attractive!
I think that we are probably in for an enjoyable weekend with one to two feet of offshore shaped surf under bright and clear skies! Longboard gliders’ heaven!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
