At 7.25 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 6 to 8 feet.
Well, Kate made her presence felt last night, stomping her stormy weight around before shuffling off in a flurry of squalls.
But off she has blown, leaving a brighter and lighter morning in her wake. It is still windy but nothing like those dark hour blasts that rattled the windows. No, this morning it’s a strong west north westerly which is coldly scurrying across the bay minus the angry strength of last night. Still promising some heavy downpours but nowhere near as violent as Kate’s were.
So, the surf is a blown out mess as you would expect, a mixed up madness of swirling waves that are washing around the bay. But it’s not that big out there, six feet maybe or possibly just a bit bigger.
It doesn’t matter though, there’s no way that you would want to go anywhere near it today!

Harlyn (2*): 4 feet.
Harlyn is a cold and windswept place to be this morning.
It is bright and the sun has fought its way through while Storm Kate has angrily stormed off to bother the south coast travel hopefuls.
There is still a brisk west nor’ westerly wind howling into the bay though making for bumpy and lumpy, messy surf here this morning.
The wind should gradually ease back to a more westerly and then south westerly direction through the morning and so Harlyn should be shining again by later this afternoon, maybe as the tide turns.
It could turn out to be another day of two distinct halves again, this afternoon promising way better surf conditions than this morning!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 15:14 (1.5m) High Tide: 08:53 (6.6m)
Surf Forecast for Tuesday 29th March 2016
A continuing five or six foot swell should be greeted by a still brisk west sou’ wester of a wind.
And, as we all know by now, that means that Harlyn is our best option locally!
So four feet plus of thick and curling, growling waves should be grinding up the beach again for most of the day, board-snappingly and leash-testingly fun in the sun! Well, maybe not like proper sun but hopefully some brighter skies!
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Storm Kate blew through over Easter Sunday night, causing some bother on the South Coast for Easter Monday morning and leaving a gusting west nor’ wester to mess up the surf here through Monday morning.
The surf though hasn’t been that big. Big enough and messy enough to be a little dangerous to the unfamiliar but just thick and lumpy and bouncy for a lot of the regulars.
Apart from those Harlyn barrels of Sunday. Toby (Donachie) seemed to be dialled into those hollow caverns all day long.
And, as we go into Easter Week, those windy and damp and unsettled conditions continue.
Monday morning’s north westerly winds should quickly change to south westerly giving the green light for more green room action at Harlyn. Four feet and tubing waves being on order with the evening’s rising tide.
Tuesday will probably see a replay of those hard blowing sou’ westers creating hollow, hollow conditions at Harlyn with more four foot caverns to explore.
By midweek the wind is likely to have reverted back to that annoying north west direction, cold and surf destroying on this coast but shape forming for the south coast – if enough swell can get around there.
And then the back half of the week is starting to look a bit more settled.
So, there should be plenty of surf this week again, even if it is looking like a continuation of more wintery conditions! Keep the neoprene on, it’s still a bit chilly out there!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
