Constantine (2*): 1 to 3 feet
at 6.50 a.m:
Those bright blue skies are wrapping themselves around us again on yet another still and cheery morning.
The surf has dropped but the calmness and glassiness, the stillness of an early spring morning makes up for that. There’s a foot or two of clean and peeling, rolling surf lining up off the breaks-that-matter, very occasional bigger and better sets still surprising the empty lineup every ten minutes or so.
It’s that kind of one foot but with three foot sets three or four times an hour setups this morning!
So, no paddling dramas here today then!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
There are little waves slipping in here this morning too, barely rideable and with a long wait between them but there are surprisingly shin high waves if you feel that you have to ride them!
Other than that, what a fantastic morning to launch a paddle. Get the SUP out ether or a kayak, or even a smooth swim, although maybe the water is still a bit chilly for that just yet!
But it is a gorgeous morning.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:01 (0.9m) High Tide: 08:38 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 23rd April 2015
This could be the last day of this little stretch of gorgeous surf and beautiful conditions, for a day or two anyway.
But we should go out with a boom and a bang.
We can expect the surf to have built overnight,a decent three foot plus swell wrapping into the bays, the wind staying offshore, maybe a bit fresher again than we would ideally choose but still offshore, still steady.
And the sun should stay for at least another day.
So, three to four feet of curling surf, another long wave-period swell rolling ashore against an offshore wind under a bright, bright sky.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
A week filled with smooth and strong swells, light offshore breezes and heaps of Spring sunshine has spoiled us again, so far this week!
And this five star feast of surf straight off the ‘Ideal Surf’ menu continues to stoke us all, at least for another day or two yet!
And another rolling three foot plus swell should be pulsing into our bays and coves through Thursday, the wind light and offshore under this settled high pressure system, the sunshine smiling all the time. It’s a rare thing to enjoy that happy combination of swell, tide, wind and weather, all coinciding with decently shaped little sandbars but this has been the week for it!
Just to mix things up a bit though, we should be seeing the arrival of the first in a queue of low pressure systems by Friday morning. It’s by no means a strong thing, just a bit more mixed than we have been enjoying, the wind slipping to the south west, a little dampness in the air later maybe along with some lumpy and choppy surf at the main breaks.
But then our sheltered spots might start to come alive again too!
But we might have to wait a bit longer for that.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
