At 6.40 a.m:
Constantine (1*): 1 to 2 feet
A cold and dull early start is already giving way to something brighter and lighter and a little cheerier.
The breeze is light but fresh from the north west, chilling the air and crumbling the surf, while clearing the sky of those mud coloured early morning cloudbanks.
Give it an hour or two and only little bundles of fluffy cloud lumps will be bouncing across a spring blue sky.
The surf is small and sloppy again, a foot or two of weak and wishy washy, crumbly stuff puttering up the sand with little energy.
It should end up being just a bit better than you might expect once you get in there but it’s not going to worth putting yourself out for too much! Then again, it is a rare thing to wish you hadn’t bothered going in – a more frequent regret to wish you had! And it might just get a little bit bigger on this evening’s tide.
Harlyn (0*): 0 to 1 foot
Tiny little, sloppy waves are washing the sand here this morning, the fresh north westerly breeze blowing straight onshore and slopping those tiny waves even more.
Once again, beautiful as it is here this morning, there ain’t no waves to ride!
Today’s Tide Times:

Surf Forecast for Easter Monday, 17th April 2017
The north westerly winds continue to blow fresh and chilly air our way again today, making a mess of the small and disorganised little windswells that are slopping into the bays.
We are probably going to be making the most of only small and choppy little waves again on an otherwise fairly bright and cheerful Easter Monday.
Surf Conditions for the Start of the Week
Small and weak little windswells have been plaguing us for the last week or so as North Westerly winds have blown their chill air our way, not doing much to support any little swells while ruining the wave shapes. And we will have to endure those conditions for at least another day or so until the wind changes.
But by Tuesday we should be seeing some much cleaner conditions, the wind having switched to the East and South East, offshore at all of our main breaks.
So, smooth and clean conditions can be expected through most of this week as the kids reluctantly shuffle back to school for exams, summer sports and other summer term shenanigans.
With bright and sunny conditions expected throughout the week we can look forward to some pleasant but chilly weather too!
And so it is a huge shame that there just isn’t going to be much around in the way of surf!
Small or tiny waves are going to be the most that we can hope for this week and even to find those we are going to have to watch the tides and charts and then hope for some luck too!
Have a great week, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!
