Surf Report for May Day 2017

At 6.40 a.m:  

Constantine (0*):  6 feet  

It’s a wild and blowey one this May Day morning, the drums are booming and the accordions are flaring but the wind is coldly growling in from the north west, dumping lumps of rain all over the place.
That will clear, at least a little and the wind will calm too while the Osses stir from their resting.
Meanwhile the surf is completely junked out with six feet or so of wind tattered and raggedy, out of control surf swirling around the bay.
The south coast is our only option for cleaner surf conditions today!  

 

Harlyn (0*):  3 feet  

Three to four feet of broken up and wind blasted surf is crashing ashore here this morning, that north westerly wind blowing hard onshore.
The surf is in tatters and the sky is grey, those hard gusts of cold wind emptying themselves in short bursts.
There are better things to do this May Day!  

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  16:08  (1.3m)              High Tide:  09:47  (6.8m)

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 2nd May 2017  

Calmer winds, brighter weather and cleaner swells should happily greet us today!
Three feet or so of offshore smoothed and curling little waves are expected today with all of our main surf breaks peeling along quite happily!

Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

After a windswept and damp start to the week, we will be welcoming back those north easterly winds to blow their chill air offshore in some brighter weather.
A thick and lumping swell is expected to roll our way through May Day Monday, six feet and bigger of windblown and raggedy swells will be battering their way into our bays and coves, the wind blowing enough rain in to try and dampen the Padstow celebrations. But May Day is bigger than that and it should end up being okay weatherwise.
By Tuesday the wind should have eased and backed to the north east, putting a bit more shape in the two to three feet of fun surf.
By midweek the swell should have built, the wind is likely to have settled offshore from the north east and east and the weather should have settled too.
yep, it is looking very good for most of next week with decent waves expected all the way through!
Have a great May Day, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
