At 6.35 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 2 to 3 feet
It’s a breezy and chilly one this morning with a steady north westerly wind blustering into the bay keeping the air fresh and clear.
That wind is not doing much for the surf either!
Two to maybe three feet of junk surf is being tossed and rolled to the beach, only a very occasional rideable one popping up as those little waves trip over a shallow sandbank but it’s going to be more by luck than judgement if you catch one of those!
There might be more fun to be had later this afternoon as the tide rises but it’s unlikely to be all that great anytime today!
Harlyn (1*): 1 to 2 feet.
A couple of feet or so of onshore wind crushed surf is washing onto the beach, that wind cold and fresh and blowing those dark clouds away, allowing something brighter, if still chilly, to replace that dark brood of greyness.
So, there’s not much going on here today again. It’s going to be adjourned to the far coast again if you want something cleaner and more organised but it could be really small too over there!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:34 (1.9m) High Tide: 16:29 (6.4m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 18th June 2016
Another breezy, chilly and damp day awaits with only small and onshore chopped surf to ride.
The wind is likely to continue to gust in from the north west, keeping temperatures down and keeping the weather moving along quickly.
There should be some small and sloppy surf on offer but it is unlikely to be any better than just about okay!
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
Onshore winds are likely to plague this coast as the week winds down and that chunky swell from Thursday is likely to weaken off too as we enter the weekend.
So we are likely to be enjoying only a couple of feet or so of onshore slopped surf for most of the weekend. But at least the weather should be dry enough and bright enough to cheer everyone up although there is always going to be that chance of a random downpour here and there, especially through Sunday.
Our best bet for better waves are going to be around higher tide, early in the morning or late evening, while the wind is calmer and the tide is helping what swell there is.
And it is always fun to get those sloppy little launch pads to fly from anyway!
Have a great weekend wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
