At 7.20 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 0 to 1 feet
Another lightly hazy, bright and beautiful morning is spreading across the coast, the air filled with the real tweets of birdsong, the breeze light and offshore.
But the surf is tiny, only a foot or so of immaculately groomed and manicured little waves are peeling off the shallow bit of the Reef at high tide.
And what high tide it is! Eight vertical meters of water movement in six hours. Which means that the tide might pull against what little surf there is as the tide drops but, it could just push that tiny swell up as the afternoon tide fills in.
We should be able to get a longboard gliding by this afternoon but I’m not sure whether it will get big enough to go shortboarding!
It is another beautiful day though!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
Harlyn is as flat as flat can be for yet another day!
It is absolutely gorgeous around here this morning but there are no waves to ride at all. If you have the time though it should be worth dragging the SUP out for what should be a very pleasant paddle!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:17 (0.3m) High Tide: 19:10 (8.1m)
Surf Forecast for Wednesday 30th September 2015
The offshores should keep gently blowing while the sunshine continues to cheer us all up and even the surf should start to show a little bit more of itself.
We should be enjoying more small but perfectly shaped surf today, a foot of peeling perfection hopefully!
But the tides are huge this week and so you might want to make the most of the tidal push to help those little waves gain more oomph!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks as though we’re in for a beautiful start to this last week of September, the sun set to shine, the breeze comfortably offshore as well as some small but steady swell activity out in the atlantic.
We are likely to be enjoying really small but gorgeously shaped little surf well into the week, the size varying with the tide and those little pulses of swell.
So timing is going to make the difference between getting a fun session or paddling frustratingly in search of those mini ghost waves.
Late afternoon will probably see the best conditions on Tuesday, just ahead of high tide. But even then it is likely to be still very small. We should see a little increase in size as we go into Wednesday, the breeze staying offshore and the sun continuing to shine!
And that’s going to be the way of it all week, just picking the optimum times of least wind, shallowest tide and biggest swell pulse. If you get it right it could be fun!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
