at 6.40 a.m:
A bright and cheerful, clear morning is cheering up the beach today, the sky stretching blue from one horizon across to the other, the birdsong echoing through the lanes.
The surf though isn’t all that.
There’s a foot or so of washed in little peaks, glinting glassily in the freshening north easterly breeze, the bigger ones not much more than thigh high.
It is a beautiful day and the bay is reflecting that beauty but the surf isn’t playing its part, the most that we can hope for is fun longboard glide at just the right stage of the tide, probably just before high water later this morning.
Or there could be a little peeler or two on the dropping tide this afternoon. But you’re going to have to pick just the right time as the tide drifts over a shallow bank, tripping those waves into something a little steeper.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It’s completely flat around here this morning with barely a ripple of wash sliding across the sand.
The north easterly wind is crumbling it too and yet the bay still keeps its allure, beckoning you in for a paddle or a swim (well, the water is gradually warming, it’s just that chilling northerly air that’s off-putting!) but you are not going to be able to get a board surfing here today!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 9th June 2015
Beautiful conditions are set to frustrate anyone with a surfboard toady.
The wind is set light and offshore, the sky should be clear, the sun will be shining but there’s likely to be ripples in place of waves today!
If you time it just right, you might be able to find a longboard glide as the tide hits a shallower part but generally we can only expect more knee high but glassy little peelers!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A pleasant week of sunshine and summer weather lies in wait for us this week but the surf could suffer as a result.
We will be lucky to see much more than a foot or so of maybe quite weak surf this week, hopefully nicely shaped and clean and glassy but real small.
The wind should be mainly light, offshore in the mornings, strengthening and maybe slipping more sideshore with the sea breeze effect through the afternoons.
Otherwise though, we should be in for a very pleasant, more summery kind of week with enough little waves to keep our glide alive!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
