Constantine (1*): 2 feet
There’s that chilly bite to the wind again this morning, the concrete grey of an overcast sky stretching between horizons, the chill wind whistling across the bay.
A couple to three feet or so of dull grey surf is rattling up the beach right now, all shaken and slopped by the south westerly, onshore wind.
And that is probably how it is going to stay for most of the day, a grey and bumpy lineup focussing those lazy waves, the sun hiding for most of the morning but putting in a welcome appearance by late afternoon maybe.
It’s on days like this that your surfing skills are honed and sharpened, those so-so days when it would be so easy to do so many other things. But if you want to get good then it’s these days that sharpen you up!
And it’s always fun anyway!
Harlyn (0*): 6″ to 1 foot
Ah, those little ripples are so small!
Six inches to only very occasionally a foot of offshore moulded and snappy little glass walls are folding onto the sand here this morning, those set waves being almost rideable!
Bu it is flat really!
This evening’s tide might show some more waves, the south westerly wind pushing lots of little slop lines together to form little waves which might just group together to form something bigger and better.
But not by much!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Sunday 16th July 2017
One to two feet of swell is going to continue to be messed up by more onshore winds, those south westerly winds switching to north westerly, staying light but strong enough to have an effect.
So another day of bobbing around and jumping about in small and onshore junk surf awaits!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A mixed weekend is waiting for us this weekend, a steady three feet of slowly building swell being lightly slopped by the return of more north westerlies through Friday, backing south westerly through Saturday and settling westerly for Sunday before going offshore as we start the week.
The weather should be fine for most of the time with some dampness expected through Sunday afternoon as a marine layer stretches over us.
So Saturday looks the most fun with an outside possibility of some very small but clean little waves to offer some choice but most people probably preferring to choose the bigger, if bumpier west facing surf breaks.
By Sunday everywhere on this coast will be enjoying onshores allowing the hyper-active to enjoy loads of air time with ramps aplenty to launch off!
And then next week is starting to look quite promising, maybe.
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
