At 6.45 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 2 to almost 3 feet
A steady downpour is keeping the gardeners and agriculturists happy this morning, the sky a mizzle blurred grey of dreary promise.
Which is a shame as the surf is a very fun looking couple to three feet of almost glassy and peaky, pre-high tide folders.
But right now the sky, the sea and the land are merging into a bland, lo-viz murk and it could just be a little while before any of it clears.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
Harlyn is a moody one this morning. The lone fisherman in his kayak completely adds to the silent atmosphere of the bay with barely a movement of swell to disturb his concentration. But the heavens have now opened, just to add some extra dampness to it all.
But basically the surf is tiny and the sky is dark and damp here today! It’s still. nice place to sit in a canoe for a moment or two though.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 14:15 (1.2m) High Tide: 20:11 (7.2m)
Surf Forecast for Friday 30th August 2018
A quiet day awaits today with the lightest of breezes forecast and, eventually, a return of some fine and bright weather too.
And so it is a shame that the surf is likely to be small at best maybe becoming tiny later.
Get the longboards out again!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
We have almost seen the back of those annoying north westerly winds, almost but not quite. The week is likely to start with those same north westerly winds blowing in and making a mess of an already weak little three foot swell. After a brief switch through Tuesday that north westerly returns to chill the air and chop the surf, a gentle reminder that Autumn is suddenly not so far away.
But then it all comes good for week’s end.
Fine weather, light breezes, bright sunshine and small but hopefully big enough, prettily shaped surf should cheer us all up for those last few days of the school holidays.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
