At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 feet
So, thirty years ago today we signed the paperwork to take on this little store at the back end of nowhere on a wing and a prayer and whole heap of naive desires.
We have seen a lot and surfed a lot and laughed a lot, as well as shedding the odd tear or two over the years. Amazing friendships have been forged and we have been helped and supported by a huge band of surf stoked individuals over the decades.
Better than anything though has been the privilege of watching so many groms develop and grow and aspire and challenge the world both in surfing and other ventures. Great musicians, sportspeople, accomplished engineers, artists, scientists, ocean activists, dancers and even the odd politician have surfed through our magic doors.
And now, as we face something that I have never experienced before and ponder a shutdown that might last a month or a season or ….however long, I will raise a glass to each and every one of our customers, suppliers, staff, family and friends and thank each and every one of you and tell you that we love you and look forward to more waves, more fun and more health, happiness and sunshine!
Let’s go surfing!
We were going to throw a big bash to celebrate but have sidelined that for obvious reasons, maybe later, maybe next year eh!?
Anyway, if you’re hoping for an isolated surf this morning then I’m afraid there are scant pickings out there.
A chilly and blustering easterly wind is pushing against the six inches to maybe a foot of immaculately shaped but tiny little waves. The sky is brightening but there’s still a lot of grey about too.
This afternoon’s tide might bring a bit of extra push to it but it is still going to be tiny at best.
Harlyn (0*): Flat
The wind is pushing in onshore at Harlyn again, that blustery easterly wind chopping the surface of the sea.
It is lovely as always around here this morning but there’s no surf to ride!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:16 (1.6m) High Tide: 16:10 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 22nd March 2020
The easterly wind should gradually ease and calm through the morning, allowing a little more swell to push its way in.
It does look like a very good day to be gliding across some small but super clean waves but make sure that you give each other a whole lot of space. You don’t want to spread no virus!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Offshore winds are going to strengthen as we go into this weekend, shaping and folding the real small surf into something a little better than it would be.
So Saturday should bring some longboard gliding opportunities to our favourite surf spots, the wind strengthening offshore through the afternoon and threatening to blow the surf flat.
But that wind should ease a little as we go into Sunday allowing a real small groundswell to peel ashore.
And just to add to the appeal we are likely to be enjoying a weekend of bright skies and sunshine, which might just cheer us all up a little!
Stay safe and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
