There’s a chill in the air out there this morning, that north easterly wind continuing to pull down the frost from elsewhere.
But the sun continues to shine bright and sharp and the sky is filled with nothing but birdsong.
The surf is small – a foot or two of offshore breeze hollowed and peaking little gliders at best. And that sea is looking wintery anyway, a battleship grey mixed with the white splash of feeding seabirds.
Yep, it is all quite beautiful and you’re not missing much in the way of surf.

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 31st March 2020
That cold north easterly will continue to blow down the coast, maybe not quite as icy as it has been at the start of the morning but still fresh. So what surf there is, and there won’t be much, will be tiny at best.
Clean and hollow and sharp but barely a foot.
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
Well the pressure to surf should be reduced this week as that massive high pressure system continues to loiter above us making for small to flat conditions all along the coast.
The small waves at the start of the week will weaken further as we go into midweek, the wind continuing to blow down from the north east, making for fabulous conditions but without any swell to enjoy them with.
It’s going to be next weekend before the wind drops back to the south east and brings much milder temperatures, although the surf is still likely to remain pretty much flat.
In the meantime the sun continues to shine, we are all pretty much housebound and there are surfboards and wetsuits and rooms and gardens and cars that need to be tended to and decorated and cleaned and trimmed and fixed. Where did we get all that time from previously?
Stay safe, stay home, wash your hands and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
