Constantine (3*): 3 feet
at 6.25 a.m:
It looks like we’re back to those grey mornings at the start of this working week, a silver grey covering of fairly thick cloud stretching from one horizon to the other.
But it is calm and peaceful and quiet out there with barely a breeze in the birdsong heavy air.
And the surf is still pulsing into the bay, a very decent three feet of oilly smooth waves bouncing in the high tide shore break. That left from yesterday’s high tide is still working this morning although it is just a bit fatter. That is probably the tide though and so it should sharpen up as the tide drops back in an hour or so.
The forecasts are showing very light westerly going south westerly going north westerly winds through today but I can’t see there being any more than a breeze, until this afternoon anyway.
So another fun day of surfing awaits!
And thanks to all those who called in over the weekend and took advantage of our Spring Sort Out Sale. A few good wetsuits went out to keep our happy little customers that bit warmer! But, although we are getting low on some sizes, we do still ahem a pretty big spread of suits left to go!
Mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want one!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
The surf is still pretty flat around here this morning, a foot or so of lazy, glassy waves rolling in from a fair way out at high tide.
The tides will be pulling in again as the week goes on but there is still a big old tide this morning, 7.8 metres of water movement in 6 hours!
Anyway, there might be little wave here at some stage today but it is likely to be tiny at best, while the other side of the headland is looking pretty good.
It’s three feet and glassy over there right now!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:46 (0.3m) High Tide: 19:37 (7.5m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 24th March 2015
Ah, the return of the north westerly winds!
We are probably going to feel that chill bite of a brisk north westerly wind throughout the day tomorrow, the surf being slopped out by it, the temperatures dropping because of it.
We are probably going to be seeing there to four feet of choppy and sloppy at most surf breaks throughout the day on this coast.
And we will have to wait and see if there is enough swell to get some waves around to the far coast where they will be cleaner and more organised!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
After the last week or two of fun and clean conditions, this week is likely to start out with onshore winds affecting the three to four foot swell that should continue to roll our way.
Monday morning is likely to start out bright enough with a breezy sou’ westerly making for bumpy conditions at the main breaks, keeping things clean at Harlyn. But by the afternoon that wind is likely to be north westerly, onshore everywhere.
And it is likely to stay that way all the way through till towards the end of the week.
There should be plenty of surf but in that sloppy and bumpy kind of way. But the young ‘uns seem to have that down, seeking out those wedgy, inside double-ups and reforms to use as launch platforms.
Yeah, the kids are teaching us a lot recently about how to surf onshore junk conditions! And that opens a whole heap of alternative options!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
