At 6.10 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 feet.
A brighter and cheerier day is spreading along this jagged stretch of coastline this morning, temperatures still low due to that gusting north westerly wind but the sky brighter and clearer.
The surf is a little raggedy again this morning, that wind tearing and tugging at the weak and tatty little swell lines, the deep blue sea carrying the patina of an ocean of broken glass.
The tide is as lazy as the swell today with barely 3 metres of movement, so that’s not going to do too much to improve the surf, although of course the inside break will be a little more protected from the wind towards high water.
So, another day of thrashing around in small junk surf awaits but that is when the reflexes are sharpened and your paddling skills are honed!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
It’s all but flat here this morning with barely a foot of onshore messed junk surf washing along the sand.
That weak and tatty windswell is struggling to make it around the headland and all the way back into the bay, while the wind continues to gust straight in, onshore.
There might be a little choppy something to twitch about on at high tide if you have to but otherwise it’s the other side of the headland for surf today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 17:56 (2.7m) High Tide: 11:35 (5.7m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 12th August 2016
Onshore winds continue to blow today but they will have eased in strength as well as switching more to the west. And that will make a difference to how it all feels. The surf will still be sloppy and choppy but not quite as mixed up and messy. And, of course, the weather should be brighter and drier too and that always helps. Little improvements will help to make today feel that little bit better than it might have been lately!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
A pleasant weekend lies ahead with light onshores set for Saturday, gently blowing along a couple of feet of sloppy but fun surf. By Sunday the breeze should have settled more to the east, offshore at all of our main surf breaks, while a little pulse of swell should be finding its way to those same breaks as that breeze becomes kinder.
The skies should brighten a lot as we go through the weekend too, promising bright and beautiful conditions all along the coast by Sunday morning and hopefully lasting for at least a few days!
So, at last we might just be enjoying a very pleasant and fine weekend with at least some fine weather and some clean surf too!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
