Great tide time with high this morning at 10.10. Problem is the wind is already up with the odd white cap. Its more the angle this morning than the strength with too much westerly in it.
We have been busy this summer with the lure of paddle boarding still strong amongst those who haven’t done it.
Below are a few pics taken over the last few weeks.

Hi Guys, we thought we would throw a few tides out there so if you were thinking of joining us on th water in raglan you would have an idea of what times are available. as a lot of you will know we have to operate around the high tide on Whaiangaroa Harbour. Basically two to two and half hours before the high on the incoming tide and an hour to an hour and half on the out going so what we call the other side of the tide.

My new Bote Low Rider has arrived and I just cant wait to get on the water. Would you believe it this morning its raining and windy. The wrong wind to boot. Oh well, reminds of when I was a kid and you get a new surfboard and there is no surf for weeks.
Like a kid with a new toy
Today is not a good day for paddling besides being windy with westerly of 15-20kph, it is raining.
The tide is high at 12.35 this afternoon. I have a funny feeling Im not going to be able stay off the harbour.
Yes, we snuck in a couple of paddles recently. Last Saturday was great day and we were joined by repeat visitors to the shed, Peter and his daughter Naomi. Plus four other like minded souls. high tide and a sunny day provide great conditions.
Keri and Sarah straight in to it
Maartin and Scott also totally at home on the water
We shot up to Auckland for the weekend and scored waves and cool as city paddling. Amazed more arent paddling on the glorious harbour they have up there. Managed to sneak a small wave in at Orewa as well.

Wow what a morning, check the pic below and see what the Harbour looks like. The tide is dropping though and will low as by luch time. A good high tide though for an after work paddle with 6.35 being its peak. No wind this morning and it will stay that way for a while.

Saturday afternoon ended up being warm and sunny with southwest breeze. So it was off to Cox’s and Lorenzen bay on the high tide. Today is looking good as well. No wind first thing , just not a lot of water. High tide this afternoon at 3.20pm.

Yes it slowing getting warmer. Alright when the suns out. We have had a few beautiful days paddling the last couple of weeks. Well worth making the effort. The weather map is looking good for paddling this weekend and we have the bonus of the tide being high just after lunch in the early afternoon.
Talking of tides , big ones at the moment with the full moon we have been having. The high tide is at 11.45 this morning. Light northerly first thing but it is forecast to get stronger.
morning paddle anyone ?
The Raglan Harbour at the time of this report is a sheet of glass. stretching right up the harbour. Its a grey day though with no sign of the sun bar the fact it isnt night. High tide is 11.40 this morning.
On Saturday morning we had a a few new season paddlers and it ended up as a father and daughter morning out. Good to see parents and kids making the most of a sport like paddle boarding to get together. below are couple of pics.

The forecast is for light winds both Saturday and Sunday mornings. We have a high tide at 9.25 am tomorrow and around ten on Sunday.
Looking forward to getting on the water with a group first thing tomorrow.

You needed to be early to catch the tide this morning and we werent. But fortunately the breeze stayed away until midday and we snuck a low tide paddle in. got to make the most of the school holidays and get on the water as much as pos with the kids.
Grandson Daniel is a keen paddler and pushed us all the way to the dough boys and back.
school holiday fun
High tide is this afternoon at 6.25pm.
How is this weather for the first week f the school holidays ? Great I reckon. Need something to do during the holidays for you and the kids. Just give The Shed a yell, and we can sort out a bit of aquatic entertainment. Today was another great day with a high this morning at 10.30.
Tomorrow is looking just as good with a high tide at 10.45 . Expect light winds again with sea breezes in the afternoon. Yes,just like summer.
Saturday has dawned clear and sunny. This is always a good break when the weekend is fine. High tide this morning is right now 8.15am. This means we pretty much have low water for most of the day. Low is at 2.10 this afternoon. So go get out there now if you can.
This morning looking inviting
Now don’t forget daylight savings begins tonight. Which I think is exelent for more water time. After work during the week becomes an option. time to go before the tide drops away.
a great morning this morning with a dropping tide and a glassey as harbour. High Tide is not until early this evening at 6.45. that leaves us with a low tide in the middle of the day.
Alright better get into it.
Spring is here and we at the The Shed are already swinging in to action. the weekend provided some good paddling conditions.
On Saturday Kathryn and Brook came down from Auckland and scored , good paddling that is. The rain stayed away and the winds were light. Sunday was a little different but still a day to paddle.
Kathryn and Brook on saturday
Today is looking great for paddling with a high tide this afternoon at 4.30pm. light southerlies swinging more southwest later this afternoon.
Yes it is a great morning. Is it the calm before the storm. Who knows , and lets not wish for it. We are on the water this morning at 11.00 on an incoming tide and hopefully light winds. High tide is at 1.pm this arvo.
Low tide this morning
Not the best start to the day today with a fresh northerly wind and a low tide. We are heading towards high a tide at just past midday today at 12.15pm. There will be sheltered parts of the Raglan Harbour to paddle on when the tide fills in.
Despite yesterdays forecast for rain the sun did shine for most of the day. The wind filled in from the southwest right on time with the tide and good down wind conditions were to be had. Daniel Kereopa made the most of the out going tide and stronger winds to sneak in a a brief but sunny ride up the harbour.

Great day yesterday with light winds and a calm glassey harbour. That beckoned all day. A classic winters day. today well not so great. A fresher wind from the southwest and a grey sky is not lending itself towards a paddle session. Ht about now 9.50.
