at 6.10 a.m.
Well that’s a super-pleasant surprise!
It’s yet another gorgeous morning filled with the sound of gentle birdsong and lapping waves, bright and cheerful sunshine spread above us, a warm and gentle morning in complete contradiction to the forecasts.
There is a marine layer out there, out on the far horizon, a bank of haze or maybe worse and it is loitering, loitering with intent.
The breeze right now is southerly, adding a little ruffle, no more than a slight bump to the couple of feet or so of nicely lined up surf. Those little lines can be seen from a long way away, evenly spaced and gentle as they move shoreward.
Yep, right now there is some very pleasant looking, small but glideable surf smoothly sliding shoreward.
You might just want to get on it as quickly as you like though, that bank of weather is likely to eventually slip ashore soon enough and then the wind will strengthen and conditions could worsen quite quickly!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is as flat as flat can be here this morning!
Well, there’s the odd shin high ripple gracefully gliding ashore but you wouldn’t get a surfboard to fit on it.
No, it’s a great place for a paddle or laze here this morning but you’re unlikely to see any surf, not today!

Surf Forecast for Monday 19th May 2014
These gentle breezes are staying even though the sky might dull.
A mix of little swells are likely to be rolling in through today, still quite clean and fun we hope but not much more than a foot or two at our main surf breaks.
But there should be a decent couple of feet or so of fun surf to play in in the morning going a little crumblier through the afternoon and maybe increasing in size, just a bit.
Yeah, it should be okay, not great but okay.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We are probably going to see a lazy start to this week, more haze and dullness just for a day or two, although we could just get lucky and see the worst of that stuff in banks of cloud around us but not over us.
The surf looks as though it has already settled into that summer rhythm of a couple of feet or so of steady, cruisy kind of waves.
If you have the time to be on it and checking the surf regularly, you should find yourself some great, fun sessions, otherwise it’s going to be pot luck. For those in the know, HTC is always favourite when the wind is light and the waves are small. Otherwise it is just going to be a case of keeping your eyes on it and grabbing those moments when those little swells hit the shallower breaks in the right way.
By midweek it is likely to be brighter and shinier but with the surf getting into the really small range.
So, a week of summer conditions lies ahead, the surf in the small but fun size range, the weather maybe a bit dull to start with but brightening up soon enough.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
