Surf Report for Saturday 12th May 2018

At 6.10 a.m:  

Constantine (4*):  6 feet  

 

It’s a beautiful morning out there this morning, the sky is huge and blue, the sun is searing in from the far horizon, the birdlife are having a dawn party and the surf is PUMPING!
Four to six feet waves are marching in against the lightest of offshore breezes, bigger sets of waves tumbling through from way out back.
In a way it is all verging on being just a little big for itself, meaning that there is another paddleathon in the offing but those majestic peaks should make it all worthwhile.
It’s a take off and tuck and run kind of day and it might just build a bit yet!  

 

 

Harlyn (3*):  3 feet  

 

Three feet and bigger of cresting and peaking, turquoise waves are spilling onto the wave compacted sand at Harlyn this morning, set waves swinging wide and arcing into the bay from a long way out.
The weather is beautiful, the waves are shimmering and it all looks like a whole heap of springtime weekend fun!  

 

Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  10:17  (1.6m)              High Tide:  16:13  (6.3m)

Surf Forecast for Sunday 13th May 2018  

Ah, the return of the beastly north westerlies.
But the wind strength should stay light and the sky should be bright, so we might enjoy some more fun yet!  

Surf Conditions for the Weekend  

These thick swells should last all the way through this coming weekend, the wind continuing to be a little blustery but lessening through Saturday and settling south westerly through Sunday.
And so it looks like a Harlyn weekend ahead of us but hopefully one of those brighter and cheerier Harlyn weekends with bluer seas and gaping barrels to play in!
So Saturday is likely to be one of those quite frustrating but ultimately rewarding days where the wind cannot make its mind up as to which direction it is most comfortable to start with. But it now looks probable that it will settle to the south east, offshore all along the coast, gradually calming from the freshness of the morning. While the main breaks could still be a bit wild during the morning, those two to three foot waves at Harlyn will still be held tall.
By Sunday the more settled sou’ wester will be adding some extra size into those already grunty waves during the morning, those swells smoothing and steadying as the day settles down.
Yep, it looks like fun but maybe mixed with a little wind and rain here and there!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
