At 6.25 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 feet
It’s a bright and cheerful Saturday morning down in the bay, the breeze is from the south, the sun is clear and bright and the sea and sky are contrasting shades of blue.
A couple of feet of slightly raggedy surf is throwing brilliant white streaks across the chopped blue surface of the bumpy sea.
That breeze is likely to become a wind through mid morning and those waves are likely to build a little as a result.
So it looks like a fun Saturday lies ahead!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
A foot or so of close together little waves are washing ashore here this morning, the southerly breeze doing what it can to tidy and smarten those little high-tide waves.
But it is so small.
I think that I’d prefer to surf the other side today, at least the waves over there are big enough to drop in on, even if they are a bit sloppy and choppy!
But it is a lovely bright and cheerful morning here and there are tiny, little waves to ride if Harlyn is your thing!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:00 (1.2m) High Tide: 19:54 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 14th May 2017
Three to four feet of rolling surf is expected to push our way today, all sunlit and cheerful with a fresh sou’ westerly wind driving those waves our way.
The evening tide will probably show the most size, around four to five feet as well as offering the best chance for cleaner conditions, if the wind eases off.
Yep, I think that it’s safe to expect a fun day of surf!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Onshore winds are going to be gusting in from the south and south west throughout this weekend, blowing in mild air along but with the odd heavy downpour here and there, hopefully mainly overnight.
And after the flatter conditions of the last couple of days, the surf should be lumping in, building steadily as we go through the weekend.
Saturday should see a bumpy three feet plus of bright and cheerful surf at all of our favourite, more swell exposed surf breaks, getting a little bigger in the evening and maybe cleaning up a lot through the afternoon too as the wind backs to the south.
A windblown but steady three to four feet of rolling swell should be pouring our way through Sunday, the wind settling from the south west, still onshore at the better breaks but offshore at Harlyn where there might just be a couple of feet of curling if snappy little waves getting in.
So, a blustery weekend awaits but it should be mild and with plenty of surf, if also with some heavy showers here and there!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
