At 6.50 a.m:
Constantine (3*): 4 to 6 feet
A cold and noisy, howling wind is screeching across the fields this morning, meeting a thick and meaty, six foot swell head-on down in the bays.
The sun is shining brightly enough but that wind is really cold, still carrying the chill air of winter as it swoops to meet the Atlantic. The result is a majestic scene of cresting peaks and long, reeling walls of blue.
You might need a bigger board today but you definitely need a superwarm wetsuit!
Harlyn (3*): 3 to 4 feet
Dust devils are streaming across the almost empty beach at Harlyn this morning as that strong south easterly blow rocks the hedgerows on its way to hollowing the three to four feet of cold Atlantic surf.
There’s a long, long wait between sets of waves but when they do roll in, those waves are rocking and reeling, curling and looping their way onto the sand, the biggest being just about overhead.
It’s an option but there might be better places to surf today, if you can find a little protection from that wind.
It is a whole lot brighter, sunnier and drier than the forecasts were promising though!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 12th April 2022
Calmer breezes will continue to drift offshore today, gently grooming the four feet of swell as it continues to rhythmically roll ashore. Onshore sea breezes will ruffle and chop the afternoon surf but it should be pretty excellent before and after.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
A week of mixed surf conditions is going to keep us guessing this week with the wind swinging around as we go along.
Those hard offshore blows at the start of the week should soon ease off allowing some much cleaner surf to roll in on Tuesday, the sea breeze effect making for crumblier conditions by the afternoon though.
And that will be the closest we get to a pattern this week with lighter and maybe offshore breezes in the morning being replaced by onshores during the afternoon.
The swell should stay in the three to four foot range through most of the week ones it has settled down from Monday’s lumping big swells.
So, with just a bit of tracking and searching we should have plenty of quality surf to play in during the lead up to Easter.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
