Surf Report for Sunday 8th May 2016

At 6.40 a.m:

Constantine (1*):  0 to 1 foot.


A light and bright, summery kind of day is spreading its warmth along the coast this morning, the sea a deep blue reflection of that deep blue sky, the breeze a whisper of cheeriness.
But the surf isn’t all that,
That big seven and a half meter tide is way too deep to allow those tiny little waves to break but there is probably a foot or so of smooth and crisp little surf rolling in amongst all that deep water.
Give it a couple of hours and the tide should drop back to reveal a longboard gliding knee-high kind of surf to play in!
And there might just be a tiny but fun little surf to be had late this afternoon as the tide pushes back in.
But it is promising to be a fabulous day weatherise!


Harlyn (0*):  Flat.


It is absolutely flat, flat, flat around here today, a smooth and glistening platter of flatness stretching to the horizon.
Grab a SUP or a dinghy or something else to play with here today because you won’t get a surfboard moving in this flatness!
It is still quiet beautiful though.


Today’s Tide Times:

Low Tide:  13:42  (0.3m)              High Tide:  19:34  (7.6m)


Surf Forecast for Monday 9th May 2016

Brisk and gusting offshore winds are going to keep that tiny little swell from growing at all.
We will be lucky to see anything more than a foot or so of well travelled and smooth but very small surf again today. By now we all know the drill; wait for the tide to move those tiny waves onto something shallower, a sandbar or rock outcrop to trip those little waves into something more rideable and then the longboard riders will be able to glide far and fast.
And there’s always the tidal push to bring some promise of more solid knee-high gliders!


Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week

A fairly settled week lies ahead with mainly light breezes drifting around us but with only small, small swells washing our way.
The weather should improve quickly with a return to that lovely spring brightness after a slow start to Monday and Tuesday.
The surf looks like it might not get any bigger than a foot or two for most of the week though, the tidal push giving most optimism for some longboard dancing. But when it gets like this there are sometimes those shallow sandbar moments of small wave magic that sometimes pop up unexpectedly. There could just be a few of those this week.
But you are going to have to be watching it carefully to get the best of it!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
