Bright skies and blue seas are filling the view this morning, with some pleasant looking little waves spilling ashore too.
Three feet or so of clean and sparkling, peaking waves are dancing in to the bay with some nice bigger sets but they are only sliding in every fifteen to twenty minutes or so. The breeze is more sideshore this morning, the forecast showing only very light north westerly winds to breeze through this morning, calming through the afternoon.
The tide is too high really right now but there are still some pleasant enough, three foot walls spinning off those peaks!

Harlyn (0*):  0 to 1 foot.

The northerly breeze is showing itself here this morning, blowing straight in to the bay, onshore.
And there’s only a foot or so of sloppy little waves hesitantly breaking along the shoreline anyway. No, it’s the other side of the headland for a surf today, it’s a little bit bigger than yesterday over there but with a bit of a ruffle on it from the northerly breeze.

Surf Forecast for Friday 26th February 2016

We’re expecting a brisk south easterly breeze today, a perfect direction for the wind to blow to shape the surf to its best – as long as it doesn’t blow too strongly!
Today’s forecast though is showing that offshore wind to be a pretty strong one, probably strong enough to block most of any swell that could be aiming our way.
So, we can expect only a foot or maybe two of smooth and hollow, offshore blown and shaped little waves to be snapping in under a greyer sky than there has been this week. That wind is likely to feel cold as well!

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

Those pleasant and cheery conditions that we have been enjoying through the week are likely to give way to something a little more blustery and damper and colder through Friday. The wind will still be offshore, now from the south east, a perfect direction to shape those waves at our better breaks to perfection. But it might just blow a little too strongly, effectively blocking a lot of swell and sapping its energy before it reaches us.
There should still be some attractive looking and wind-hollowed little waves peeling in but it is probably going to be small, a foot or two at best.
The wind is likely to stay offshore through the weekend, becoming lighter and more easterly by Saturday and so maybe allowing a little more swell to reach us. Combine that with some bright and cheery sunshine though and suddenly it all becomes very attractive!
I think that we are probably in for an enjoyable weekend with one to two feet of offshore shaped surf under bright and clear skies! Longboard gliders’ heaven!
Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
