NSRI urge extreme caution around the coastline between the 10th and the 18th November.The monthly Full Moon Spring Tide peaks on the Full Moon on Monday 14th of November and the effects of this Spring Tide on the coastline begins today, peaks on the 14th November and will continue to affect the coastline into the later half of next week.Spring Tide happens twice every month, at Full Moon and at New Moon, and lasts for a few days over each full moon and each new moon, peaking on the day of the full moon and the new moon.The twice monthly Spring Tides bring higher than normal high tides and lower than normal low tides and stronger than normal rip currents.This November the 14th 'Super Full Moon Spring Tide' will have a greater affect on the coastline because the full moon this month will be closer to earth than normal (known as a Super Moon).This Super Moon will have a marginally greater affect on the Spring High and Low Tides making them more prominent than normal and hence extreme caution is advised because rip currents around the coastline will be stronger than the normal spring tide effects on the coastline.From Thursday 10th November - peaking on Monday 14th November - and lasting until at least Friday 18th November - over this period of time the public, anglers, bathers, beach strollers, boaters, paddlers and coastline hikers are advised to exercise extreme caution around the coastline during this Super Full Moon Spring Tide and to be aware of rough sea conditions, stronger than normal rip currents, higher than normal high tides, lower than normal low tides, the Spring Tide phenomenon and its natural affect on the coastline.TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE img_4422 TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE
