At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 3 feet
A bright and cheery, peaceful morning is spreading along the coast this morning, the breeze is light and the sun is bright while birdsong fills the air.
The surf looks promising too, three feet of deep blue, long travelled lines of waves are marching into the bay, a little hesitant to break but that is probably just the effect of the dropping tide. The breeze is drifting in from the south south east, just offshore.
Yep, give it a couple of hours and I think that we will be enjoying a fabulous day of very good surf!
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot.
The surf is smaller than expected around here this morning, only a foot or so of wobbly little waves are hesitating their way into the bay right now.
But at the moment that tide is halfway out on the drop, so you have to think that it could all improve massively on the incoming tide through midday.
But the other side should be really very good all day long and so that is the place to go today, it’s all offshore breezes and thick and lumpy swells over there today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:26 (1.0m) High Tide: 16:21 (6.9m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 5th May 2016
A five foot swell with a mid teens wave-period being groomed by light east south easterly breezes should all add up to perfection.
Throw in some wall-to-wall sunshine and conditions just might make up for those long weeks of not so great surf and weather.
It should be pumping today!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A bit of a lacklustre start to the week is going to be brightened quite quickly as the May Day celebrations ease into the beer sodden memory banks, with a taste of more Summer-like weather promised by the week’s end.
The surf should improve too – after a slow and onshore blown start.
Midweek should show some really, really good conditions!
The expected three to four feet of swell of Wednesday should build through to four to five feet as the week ends, offshore, south easterly winds grooming those waves into smooth lines of hollow breaking waves!
Yes, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and into the weekend should be wave-filled and sunny, all warm and pleasant with some solid swells curling our way.
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
