Ah, another grey day is smothering us in rain as we wake up this morning, a freshening wind whistling down from the north east carrying plenty of rain for the gardeners and farmers out there, irritating the campers and barbequers.
The surf is small, real small but there are rideable waves coming through in beautifully groomed sets, a foot or two on the peak, that peak held till the last moment by the offshore wind before those lovely little waves peel off in that smooth turquoise sea.
The longboard gliders are going to have the advantage today and those who have the time to wait for this fairly big tide to hit the shallow bits.
It is likely to go flat as the tide fills into the deeper bits of the bay, it is going to need those shallow bars too to trip up those little waves into something more rideable!
But if you time it right with the right equipment then you should have a great time sliding across those smooth and hollow little waves.

It’s completely flat around here this morning with the north easterly wind putting a bit of onshore chop on it just to make a SUP session a bit of a bumpier thing.
I guess that people will dive in here today, it’s that time of year but you really need to head to a more swell exposed spot if you want to surf today!

Surf Forecast for Friday 14th August 2015

Those annoying north westerly winds which we seem to have endured a lot this year are back again today.
Onshore everywhere on this coast, the north westerly wind does nothing for the surf around here.
But there should be a slowly building, more localised little swell rolling in through the day, offering at least some fun three foolish and sloppy surf to play in.
It should brighten up later on too!

Surf Conditions for the End of the Week

Thursday’s surf is likely to be pretty small but still clean and smart in the morning, the wind hovering offshore but ready to switch to north westerly (onshore everywhere) by lunchtime.
The end of the week though looks bright and cheerful with a growing swell and onshore winds through Friday, the wind becoming lighter into the weekend as the sun strengthens and the breeze eventually switches offshore (probably by Sunday).
The swell is likely to be more small and close-fetch stuff as we go into the weekend, filling out and strengthening as we go along.
By Sunday and into Monday we should be enjoying some small but clean and smart little waves.
And that should carry us well into what is looking like a sunny and pleasant summer’s week of fun surf!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
