Surf Report for Saturday 12th April 2014

Constantine (1*):  1 ft

It’s a bit of a sombre looking morning out there, mild enough but overcast and breezy, that westerly wind just about strong enough to tug and pull at you.
The surf is pretty small, a foot or occasionally two, a bit crumbly and bumpy looking, a frothy little shore break on the beach, too small to get going on any of the rockier breaks.
Right now there’s that low cloud cover which has started off most days this week, hopefully that will clear as we go through the morning but there’s no guarantees to that.  It’s the same as the surf, all the forecasts are showing some improvement but not until later.
It wouldn’t surprise me if we were all enjoying a couple of feet of lazy, bumpy surf in the sunshine by this afternoon but that is definitely not definite!

 

 

Harlyn (0*):  Flat

It’s pretty much flat around here this morning and that westerly wind is crumbling what little waves the are trickling through.
Nope, it’s the other side today for a surf and it’s not exactly great over there!  But at least it’s rideable with the promise of some fun later.

Surf Forecast for Sunday 13th April  2014

Hmmm, it’s looking promising today!
All of the charts are indicating that we could (should?) waken to a pretty decent three foot plus groundswell with a mid teen wave-period, light breezes and lots of sunshine!
The only fly in the ointment is that the breeze is likely to be from the north west, onshore at most places.
But that is probably only going to affect things later on.  The surf is likely to very pleasant through the morning and again in the evening, those sea breezes strengthening through the early afternoon.
Yep, it could just be quite good!

 

Surf Conditions for the Weekend

The week started out as a damp ‘n breezy one with fresh westerly winds buffeting the coast and swirling the surf.  But the sun has been taking control for moments through each day while that wind has weakened to a breeze, shifting back and fore between the north and the west, onshore at most places but light enough to just about get away with it for most of the time.  
There’s a steady couple of feet of swell being carried our way by that wind, a rolling swell that should produce some fun and very surfable two to three foot waves well into the weekend, maybe building a bit more for Sunday.  
All of the main breaks should be seeing enough surf to get going on, maybe getting a little crumbly and sloppy through the afternoons, cleaner in the mornings and evenings.  Sunday is starting to look bright and cheerful with some bigger surf rolling our way too.   So a weekend of fun surf and pleasant and bright enough weather awaits, a typical early spring weekend really, becoming really quite pleasant by Sunday!

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re doing!
