At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 3 feet.
That was a bit of a downpour!
A full blast of heavy water to start the day has left a brighter and fresher, if a little chillier morning with a brisk north westerly wind to chop the small and mixed up surf.
Three feet or so of mixed up and choppy surf is bouncing into the bay, shuffled along by that gusting onshore wind.
It’s not great surf out there but there are a couple of guys out already and enjoying some of those unpredictable peaks.
High tide might smooth things out a little and then the dropping tide should sharpen it up a little too but the best that we an really hope for today is three feet of windblown slop!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot.
A foot or two of windblown and choppy surf is stuttering into the bay this morning, a grey and mixed up mess of small and uninteresting surf.
It might all improve a little as the tide rises over the next couple of hours but it’s unlikely to be any better than okayish!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:43 (1.6m) High Tide: 09:21 (6.7m)
Surf Forecast for Sunday 26th June 2016
The wind is likely to have switched to the west, promising a brighter and milder day but still with some dampness never too far away.
The surf is likely to be a little smaller and still quite close-fetch but should be at least worth getting in on at some stage.
So, a brighter and cheerier day awaits with some more small summer junk surf to play in!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Light winds continue to drift in onshore as this week winds down, the swell keeping up its steady three foot rhythm as it continues to pour our way well into the weekend.
The weather continues to be mixed but should settle more as the breeze eases to the west, veering from south west to north west and back again.
So it looks like we should enjoy a weekend of fun waves and okay weather, those big tides having an effect as the tide is pushed over seven metres up the beach and then pulled back down again. With a bit of timing and just some local knowledge you should be able to enjoy a good session or two each day, especially if you’re keen on an early start!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
