Constantine (3*): 2 feet
It’s a lovely start to this Easter Sunday with the calmest of breezes lightly brushing a small but prettily shaped two foot swell.
The sky is bright but the shadow of a cloud bank is slowly tip toeing our way so be quick if you’re going outdoors!
And don’t forget to call in for your new surfboard licence (£49.99, cards accepted with £4.99 credit card processing fee) which kicks off today.
As you are probably aware by now, Cllr April Fearst’s introduction of the licensing scheme coincides with the surf school licencing and great beach toilet sell-off along with the increase in parking fees at all of our bays, as part of the multi-pronged approach now in place to reduce the amount of beach users.
Contrary to rumours, the dog tax is not scheduled to start until 1st May.
Harlyn (0*): 1 to 2 feet
Tiny but perfect little waves are casually spinning across the high tide bank at Harlyn.
It is as pretty as a picture here this Easter Sunday morning but those little waves are tiny, tiny.
It’s the other side of the headland for a surf today!
Today’s Tide Times:
Low Tide: 13:25 (0.4m) High Tide: 19:14 (7.4m)
Surf Forecast for Easter Monday
Strong south to south westerly winds are forecast to swoop this way pushing some chunky swells into our bays coves.
We are hoping for some three foot Harlyn hollowness today with some munching barrels to play in!
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!
