At 6.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): Flat
The tide is high and the sea is smooth on this beautiful summer morning but there’s no surf at all.
Well, there is the odd screamingly gorgeous ripple peeling off the Reef but it’s not rideable. We will have to wait and see if the dropping tide shows anything as it all shallows out.
I reckon that we might just get the tiniest of planking glides as the tide hits low around lunchtime but that is definitely not definite!
Otherwise, slap more sunblock on, it’s another scorcher!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Ah, the biggest and most gorgeous but also most surfless pond in the world is appealing and calling to be paddled or swum.
There’s not even a ripple to disturb that turquoise mirror smoothness at Harlyn this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:45 (1.5m) High Tide: 18:40 (7.0m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 29th June 2018
There might just be an inch or two of extra swell today but you know that we’re in trouble when we are trying to forecast an extra inch or two of surf!
The weather will continue to be fine and settled and warm and sunny and fabulous but the surf is going to be judged on increments of centimetres!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Well the big surfing event of this summer, the ‘Battle of the Foamies‘ is scheduled for this Saturday!
A fancy dress surfing extravaganza offering an amazing array of prizes will go down at Harlyn Bay with entry open to everyone and anyone!
It is expected to be a massive event and it is hoped that huge amounts of money will be raised to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Harlyn Surf Life Saving Club – both massively important to the Young Guns of the area.
So come on down and drop in on what promises to be a fabulous event!
And don’t forget the evening entertainment!
Luckily the Battle of the Foamies will be immense fun regardless of the actual surf conditions because those waves are looking real small again!
Saturday is likely to see not much more than knee high gliders at our main breaks but hopefully allowing some dribblers through to Harlyn to test those foam board surfing heroes! But the weather should continue to be hot and sunny and gorgeous.
And then it’s all change for Sunday!
The wind is likely to remain offshore, from the east north east, a bit blustery in the morning and then calming through the day as rain clouds gather and thundery downpours threaten.
The surf is going to stay small but bigger than it has been with a thicker one to two feet of offshore shaped peelers tempting you in!
And then a new week continues the bright and cheerful weather and small but well shaped surf.
The temperatures might be lower and the air fresher but otherwise summer seems settled! Have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
