At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 1 to 2 feet
The muffled whoosh of a couple of feet of smooth and lazy surf is adding rhythm to the mellow birdsong amongst the haze and murk of a misty morning down in the bay this morning, the beach empty and otherwise silent.
The sun should burn through eventually but the forecasts are full of temperature drop predictions, that northerly breeze promising to drag cold air in its tracks.
Otherwise though, the surf should continue to be small but clean, a playground for longboarders and gliders – if you have a warm enough wetsuit!
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Harlyn is peaceful again this morning, that canopy of mist and haze snuggling over the beach.
The surf is all but flat though, with barely six inches or so of wishy washy little wavelets chasing the breakfasting seabirds across the shallows.
The bay will soon be alive with the playful shout of Easter holidaymakers but for the moment it’s all calmness and quiet.
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 11:40 (0.9m) High Tide: 17:32 (6.8m)
Surf Forecast for Thursday 31st March 2022
A bright but cold day lies ahead, with an offshore north easterly sharpening the tiny surf in the morning, swinging onshore, north westerly, for the afternonn.
One foot and clean to start the day, two feet and choppy to end!
Surf Conditions for the Rest of the Week
We are likely to see a slight change in the weather pattern this week as smaller but still consistent swells continue to glide smoothly into our bays and onto our surf breaks.
The breeze is gradually going to ease its way to a more northerly direction, strengthening through the back half of the week as it settles to the north east.
We’ll definitely feel the temperature drop as that colder air blows across the bays but it will still be offshore and will continue to groom those small but steady swells into peeling and hollow, very rideable little surf. During the mornings anyway.
Longboards and fat fish are going to be the boards of choice as those rolling swells produce mainly 1 to 2 feet of surf, a little bigger through midweek, easing off in size as the wind strengthens offshore through the back half of the week.
So, pop another layer of clothing on, forget taking your boots off for just another wee while, grab yourself something floaty and enjoy another fun week, gliding around on those smooth, curling waves.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
