At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 feet
We’re snuggled beneath a layer of grey down in the bays this morning, a light sou’ wester breezing onto the three feet or so of quite close together and crumbly little surf.
But the air is dry and the seabirds sound happy and bits of blue can be seen streaking through the early morning greynesss – we should find some fun little ones to glide across if we pick the right place at the right tide and the right time.
Harlyn (1*): 1 foot
Harlyn is quieter this morning, a sign of weaker surf and a very slight threat of dampness.
There’s a foot or two of glassy little snappers slapping the sand every few minute but the tide is wrong and there’s not much swell managing to find its way into the bay anyway. It could improve on this afternoon’s tide but probably won’t be much bigger than hip high to a short person at best.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 10:26 (1.4m) High Tide: 16:20 (6.5m)
Surf Forecast for Saturday 14th May 2022
Light breezes and some clear skies should make the more solid swell of today look much more attractive and enticing.
We might just be enjoying a fun two to three feet of very summery feeling but ripable surf today. And the late afternoon Spring tide should add that little extra oomph to it all too.
Surf Conditions for the Weekend
High pressure will lazily roll over us this weekend to provide soft breezes, calm weather and some milder temperatures.
The surf is likely to be only small but small and clean, shapely stuff with enough swell to get on to all of our preferred local surf breaks.
Longboarders might be having more fun this weekend but there should be enough surf, certainly just ahead of those evening spring high tides, to allow the shortboarders to find some air room too.
You might even regret not packing the sunblock this weekend too!
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
