Constantine (1*): 1 ft
It’s another gentle and sparkling, beautiful start to the day this morning!
There’s the lightest of offshore breezes drifting into the faces of those twinkling mini peelers that are breaking off the back of the Reef, knee-high and reeling sheets of glass.
It is chilly again to start the day but that should change as that big bright sun has an effect.
And have you seen the moon these last nights? How brilliant has that been!
Anyway, today looks like a day for the longboard, minimaliboobies in a golden light. If this keeps up we’ll be slipping into summer suits soon enough!
Enjoy (and don’t forget the sunblock!)!
Harlyn (0*): Flat
It is flat around here this morning, an infinite sheet of gleaming glass, stretching to the horizon and beyond. There’s barely a ripple at the water’s edge this morning, just a gentle swoosh as those ripple wash across the sand.
It’s a little different to those winter days of not so long ago!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Thursday 17th April 2014
It looks like another promising day ahead of us with plenty of sunshine promised.
The wind is likely to be drifting onshore today though, a light north westerly probably just adding some surface chop to the sea, although there should be not much more than a breeze for most of the day. Early and late are looking most promising but even then the surf is unlikely to be much more than a gliding foot or so.
There will be surf but it’s likely to be real small and maybe a little ruffled through the afternoon.
Surf Conditions for the End of the Week
High pressure has been in control so far this week providing dry and settled and bright weather with calm winds and blue skies. And we should be able to enjoy a few days more of this early taste of summer yet.
The swell has eased off, that half decent three foot swell dropping to a shin to knee-high but solid little fun swell, powerful enough to get a longboard gliding, maybe even a fish at those certain stages of the tide.
The wind is forecast to slip onshore through Thursday but staying light, not much more than a breeze before slipping back to a more easterly going south easterly direction as we go into the weekend, gently blowing direct offshore, grooming those small but rideable waves to perfectly shaped little things.
So to end the week it is likely to be only small, a foot or two at best. But it should stay bright and cheerful and pleasant enough to get you scurrying after a longboard!
Have a great week, whatever you’re doing!
