At 6.15 A.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
A steady onshore, westerly breeze is slopping the two to three feet of unsteady surf that is wobbling our way beneath yet another concrete grey sky this morning.
There is a fun looking little peak washing off the back of the Point, all mushy and hesitant but probably rippable with the right skills on the right board at the right time. Yep, it is looking like one of those days where some will have fun and others are going to be frustrated.
But the wind should calm and the sky should clear, maybe not until later this afternoon but it should happen and that always makes the surf look better even if it doesn’t break any differently!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
Tiny little waves are lining up to snap at the sand here this morning.
Barely rideable, one foot at the most, but glassy and curling and hollow (for the size!) little snappers are crunching down.
I’m guessing that the surf schools will be having a ball here today, especially as the tide rises, giving it all that extra little push.
Tiny Harlyn on an overcast Sunday morning?
There are worse things to be doing but maybe the other side, raggedy as it is, is the better option again today.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:12 (2.0m) High Tide: 10:51 (6.3m)
Surf Forecast for Monday 17th July 2017
Oh, one to two feet of offshore groomed little surf beneath some broken sunshine?
Sounds good to me!
Drag out the longboard or fish or whatever fun board you might have lurking around for a pleasant day of fun, gliding across peeling and shimmering little waves!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A day or two of small but fun and clean little surf should start the week nicely, the weather bright enough for spells but not quite the settled gorgeousness of a couple of weeks ago.
So Monday will have one to two feet of peeling and peaking little waves at pretty much all of our favourite surf breaks scattered along the coast, Tuesday continuing the theme but with that wind strengthening, maybe a little too much by the afternoon.
By midweek the wind will have reverted back to south westerly, blowing in plenty of small and broken up windswell but also cleaning up some of those sheltered more northerly spots, if those waves are blown in and big enough!
So a mixed week of summer awaits with some big surf promised for the end of the week, those winds controlling the wheres and whens, as always!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
