Constantine (1*):  1 foot

at 6.20 a.m.


It’s a misty start to the day today!
A thick and clinging marine layer is hanging in the air this warm and otherwise very pleasant morning.
With visibility down it is difficult to get a decent snapshot of the waves this morning but there are some fun looking waves out there. A foot or occasionally just a bit more of sheet glass and gentle surf is drifting shorewards through the mist. It is rideable, maybe a struggle on a short board but gliding fun on a plank.
It won’t be long before the mist burns off and that bright and cheerful (scorching?) sun beats down for another exceptionally beautiful day and then we should be seeing just a little improvement in the surf.
That one foot of glassy and gentle surf should gradually become more defined, gradually just a little stronger and eventually just a bit bigger. By this afternoon’s high there should be some more than fun two foot surf peeling ashore. And the water temperature is gentle and warm.
Boardshorts anyone?

Harlyn (0*):  Flat


A gentle wash is splashing the shore through that early morning fog bank.
It is flat again around here this morning, little (tiny!) lines at the shore but not big enough to float a surfboard.
It’s the place to launch a SUP or Kayak once again but ether’s no need for a wave riding vehicle!

Surf Forecast for Thursday 24th July 2014

We should be enjoying some more small but fun surf with plenty more sunshine eventually.
The day is likely to start off a little sombrely but it should soon brighten up. Although we might just see some of that gentle mist-like rain before it brightens again.
So, more one to two foot, clean and glassy (mainly offshore) surf is expected. Those longboards have been earning their keep this summer haven’t they!?


Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week

These beautiful and warm, summer days seem to be with us for a while to come!
The summer surf doldrums have set in too though. There’s not much out there in the way of swell making storm action to raise any hope for any real surf anytime soon.
The most that we can hope for as this fabulously warm and bright week (yet another in a series of warm and bright weeks) rattles by is that we get more of those localised, small and lazy little summer swells to glide a longboard on.
More and more are grabbing the opportunity to paddle out for brief board short sessions too as the water temperature nudges its way past 18 deg C well on its way to 19 deg C.
So, another fantastic summer week slides by but with only small waves to keep us occupied!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
