Calm Cross-Shore wind
Surf conditions at 6.55 a.m. on Tuesday 19th March 2013:
It is another more than pleasant morning this morning, shared only with a family pod of Dolphins (or maybe Porpoises?), seemingly putting on a little circus show just for me.
Or maybe they were feeding.
Anyway, the surf is a couple of feet, a little shimmery, a little loose, a little glassy. The breeze is pretty much southerly, although once again it seems to be blowing the tops off the waves in an offshore way but allowing that ruffle and bump to the wave faces in an onshore kind of way.
The sun is shining down, big marshmallow clouds hurrying home as dawn settles, while the breeze gains some (relative) warmth. The 'screen needed scraping again this morning, reminding us that Winter has not quite finished, not just yet.
But it is a fabulous morning with a small but fun looking wave to surf. High tide is probably going to be the best, although yesterday it improved on the drop.
But then again, I did drive through a sleet and snow and hail storm yesterday afternoon, in between an otherwise picture postcard, mild and sunny day!
