Constantine (2*): 3 ft
Another quiet and peaceful morning is upon us, a silver canopy snuggling tightly over us, the air still and filled with birdsong.
There’s about three feet of fairly glassy surf rolling in, it is all a little bumpy and a bit on top of itself but that is probably just the tide. The breeze is likely to breathe offshore, the forecast promising the lightest of light breezes throughout the day, offshore through the morning, sliding more northerly through the afternoon. That will keep the temperature down!
But it should be mild enough.
So, a day of three foot, fairly close together but clean and fun surf awaits us to kick off another holiday weekend! It should brighten up in a minute too, if only for a wee while!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is small around here this morning, a ruffled six inches or so of otherwise lined up little waves washing ashore an hour or two ahead of high water.
It’s a day to surf the other side today, it’s a very decent three feet over there. You would have trouble surfing a SUP around here this morning!
As always though, it is still a nice place to spend some time.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:29 (1.1m) High Tide: 08:08 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 3rd May 2014
Light offshores are forecast for today, a gentle south easterly breeze helping to shape that probably very small surf.
There’s only a foot or two of surf expected to be rolling in to start the day, probably just enough to tempt you in on a longboard, especially as the tide drops out.
But give it some time and check it on the evening rise, we could just be in for some improving swell.
Three feet plus and clean and sparkling is my hope, building steadily as darkness spreads. Yep, it could just get good later!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
We should just about hang on to those small swells as the holiday weekend slides towards us, a couple of feet of smoothly lined up, ten secondish wave-period stuff, lightly slopped by the varying breezes but generally that fun and cruisy kind of surf, the sort of stuff that you often enjoy without realising it.
Friday should show some clean and pleasant, small but fun waves all day with light offshores forecast until late afternoon, the swell starting to increase with the evening tide.
And the weekend is now looking good with expected offshores for most of the time, mainly light, just enough strength to groom that anticipated small but very surfable little swell all the way through the holiday weekend.
In fact the weekend is looking like a mainly bright and cheerful one with very pleasant little waves!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
