The sky is quickly brightening after last night’s rainfall, the breeze still lightly blowing offshore from the east north east.
And so the bay is looking magnificent again this morning except for the obvious lack of surfable waves.
There are some promising swell lines rippling through the deep water of high tide with a tiddler or two peeling off the back of the Reef but the best we can look forward to is likely to be some mini-gliders, some knee high curlers to slide across on a longboard.
It always feels nicer in some of that sharp Spring sunshine though!

Harlyn (0*):  Flat.

It is flat again around here this morning, tiny ripples of glass rolling up the beach at high tide but no more than a few inches in height.
But, as always, it is a beautiful place to just be on a bright and calm, relaxing morning.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 24th April 2016

Cold north nor’ westerly winds are going to be blowing down the coast today, a sideshore wind of no use to any surf that rolls our way.
And so the best that we can hope for is a foot or so of sloppy and ruffled surf at our favourite surf breaks.
It should be bright and cheery, if a little nippy, all day long!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

These small but clean surf conditions are likely to be with us right into the weekend, the weather a little gloomy as the week ends but brightening beautifully as the weekend kicks in.
Teeny, tiny but still squeaky clean waves are going to tempt usfor most of the time, with maybe sloppier conditions spilling in later.
A cold north easterly will be blowing offshore again by Saturday morning, blocking the foot or so of smooth and attractive looking but still tiny little surf from building too much.
A bright and cheerful day will be tempered by that cold wind again though. Beautiful in the lee of that wind, chilly when exposed to its northern bite.
The wind will probably settle to the north for Sunday, again that chilling and stinging coldness being dragged down to us from up there and making for some bumpier surf than we have seen for a while as well.
So, a pleasant weekend of bright but chilly weather with only small surf, staring out clean and inviting, gradually becoming a little bumpier and sloppier as we go along.
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
