At 7.05 a.m:
Constantine (0*): 3 to 4 feet
It’s a wild and woolly Easter Saturday morning with a frisky nor’ wester blustering into the bay and chilling those bits that aren’t cosily tucked away.
Three or four feet of windtorn and raggedy, wild and mixed up surf is lumbering up the beach, the tide reluctantly dropping out in spite of that hard blow trying to keep it there.
The south coast will be the only option of something cleaner and more organised to surf on today but the traffic could be harsh and it could just be a wee bit small too!
Harlyn (0*): 2 to 3 feet
A couple to three feet of windblown and chopped out surf is bumbling around the bay here this morning as well.
That north Westerly wind is blowing straight onshore, gusting into those lumps of grey water and bouncing them into each other.
It’s a wild and messy, sloppy kind of surf that is pushing in here today and there’s no sign of any improvement coming anytime soon!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 12:47 (0.4m) High Tide: 18:36 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Easter Sunday 2018
The wind should have calmed overnight and swung offshore. And so a calm south easterly breeze is likely to be smoothing what is left of yesterday’s windblown mess.
We should be able to enjoy a foot over two of curling and peeling, fun little waves to glide across all day long.
Shame about the dull weather though!
Surf Conditions for Easter Weekend
Those north westerly winds are going to be blowing through on Saturday making a mess of the three foot swell that will be rolling in, frustrating our Easter visitors in their search for something more organised.
The lifeguards are on duty over the Easter holidays and so can offer advice as to where and when it might be safest to dive in, especially useful if you’re not familiar with the area and have kids with you.
But Saturday should provide loads of fun waves if not that wonderfully shaped for the more experienced guys.
By Sunday we should be enjoying some pleasantly shaped but really small waves at all of our favourite surf breaks. A foot or two of curling and looping, fun little waves to glide across, even if the weather turns out to be bit on the dull side.
A gusting southerly wind will blow a few showers our way through Easter Monday, a four to five foot swell rolling in at our main breaks.
Harlyn could be the place on Monday, a couple to three feet of offshore shaped and hollowed fun little waves hopefully becoming a little more powerful than you might expect as the day goes on.
Have a great Easter weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
