At 7.40 a.m:
Constantine (2*): 3 to 4 feet
Three or four feet of lumped and bumped, grey looking surf is tumbling into the bays ahead of a wet and gusting nor’ westerly wind this morning, the seabirds and dog-walkers scurrying quickly in search of shelter.
It ain’t summer yet in spite of those few days of surf filled sun filled bliss last week!
Harlyn (1*): 2 feet
A windswept, chilly and wet Harlyn is deserted this morning, the bouncing string of lights at the welcoming early morning coffee shack only adding to the feeling of wintery isolation.
The two feet of bouncy and sloppy grey surf isn’t quite enticing enough to grab anyone’s attention, not when there’s soaking squalls spiralling into the bay.
Not today, thank you!

Surf Forecast for Tuesday 5th April 2022
The wind should ease more westerly through this morning, at least allowing Harlyn to shape up a little although it’s unlikely to get to more than a couple off feet in size.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
It looks like we’re in for a period of wet ‘n windy stuff with a weak and bumpy, windswept four feet or so of uneven surf being the best we can look forward to enjoying on this coast for the next few days at least.
The wind is likely to start out from the north west at the beginning of the week, gradually easing to the west before briefly settling to the south west by midweek.
That at least will give Harlyn a chance to shine for a few hours while the bigger, lumpy swells that have been pushed our way are groomed into something hollower and more fun by that same wind blowing offshore there.
But then the wind is likely to swing north westerly again by week’s end, chopping out the surf once more, a surfer to the south coast being our only option if we want some cleaner conditions.
Stay safe, stay happy, stay well and have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
